    Hi!

    I was thinking about getting the new flash for my E-P3. To the FL-300R owners, how is this little flash performing? Any suggestions? Is it worth it? Recommended?

    Thanks for your input.

    IMHO one excellent use of an on-camera flash is bouncing off white ceilings indoors. Hence I would not recommend any flash that does not both tilt and swivel. With tilt-only you cannot bounce for vertical format pictures.

    Yeah but you can use the RC mode of the E-P3 and point the flash in any direction...

    I only wish the FL-300R supported Super FP mode, but I guess you need a really strong flash for that!

    I used mine yesterday for a casual photo shoot, and the power was almost too weak for my liking.. Ended up putting it away & using my FL-36R through out most of the shoot!
