View Full Version : E420 and FL-36R

I bought a late E-420 last September and I'm now thinking about adding an FL-36R flash.

I have had conflicting information about the E-420's ability to fully communicate with the FL-36R using the Radio link (RC-Flash).

All the RC Flash settings seem to be in the E-420's menu, so one would assume it will all work fine - can anyone confirm this please

I have an FL36R and an E420, but I must say I havent actually explored the wireless options. Is there anything in particular you would like to test?

There shouldn't be any problems with RC operation on the E420. What you might consider is the limited flash range of the FL36R. You may find underexposed photos if using for anything but small room application. I found the FL50R much better & capable of lighting much larger areas, especially for bounce flash use.
