View Full Version : Wireless Flash Shooting Examples by Olympus

20th March 2009, 06:39 AM
I found the examples of Wireless Flash Shooting Examples on the olympus site really excellent.

I wondered if anyone knew if this (or this sort of advice - olympus specific would be best) was available in the form of a book / downloadable PDF? Maybe with even more examples?

I have an FL36R and this has given me some good ideas.

Heres a direct link to the flash slideshow (javascript:winopen('http://objects.olympus-europa.com/consumer/features/e420/en/wirelessflash_shootingexample.htm','feature',640,4 80);)

If this direct link doesnt work try going to

Here the Olympus Page (http://www.olympus.co.uk/consumer/198_6757.htm)

The slideshow is on the bottom righthand side: "Wireless Flash Shooting Examples Slideshow"

Thank you for the link. I found it very useful to see the results pictures. But like you I would struggle to do any of them.

In the past I was shown a web page which I turned into a useful set of instructions for the FL50R which might be helpful. If you PM me an email address I can send them on to you.

I don't have a remote flash so bought a cable to give me a flash on a metre long lead. My intention is to try and make that work for my macro insect work. Looking at these I might make a diffuser for it.

I find the flash area very hard to get into as it has an air of mystery and secrecy which gets in the way. My son has the right attitude he just turns it on and starts to experiment. I try to read the manual.
