    Hi...I just purchased an fl-600r. Yesterday I had my flash working so I could bounce the flash off the ceiling and I was using the LED as a fill flash. I'm trying to do that again today but I cannot remember the settings. I've tried at least 20 different combinations of flash and E-M1 settings and can't get the LED to fire as a fill. Does anybody know how to do this? Thanks

    I didn't realise that was even possible :-O

    I'm thinking I may have been mistaken. It may have been coming on only as a flash assist and not as an actual fill light.

    Yeah....oh well. Would be a cool feature! I read an article where a guy sets it to manual and leaves it on full time to act as a fill while bouncing the head of the flash off the ceiling. I may try that.
