    Hello,

    I have an OM-D EM-1, and I'm looking for a flash, I've seen del Olympus FL-600, that it cost 350€, the Panasonic DMW-FL360L (250€), but I don't know if I could use it with my camera, and the Nissin i40 (220€). If I could use the Panasonic with the OMD, I think that it could be a good option.

    What do you think?

    Thank you

    It all depends on whether you want to use the flash remotely with the line of sight TTL Olympus signaling.

    If you do these are all ok choices or you could go with the older FL36R which has slower recharge but can be a lot cheaper ($125-150 USD).

    If you just want to use it on the camera there are a lot of options - plain FL36 ($80), one of the Metz models, etc.

    So, the DMW-FL360L is compatible with the OM-D and have the same functions as FL-600?

    Olympus and Panasonic flashes are interchangeable and will work on either brand of camera. I use Olympus flashes on my Panasonic cameras only because they tended to be cheaper in the past. In the case of the FL-600 vs DMW-360l, they are the same flash, just branded differently. If you go back almost all of the flashes for 4/3 and m4/3 have Olympus and Panasonic versions that are identical.

    If you don't like people asking questions, maybe a forum is not the best place to spend your time?

    .... I see you contributed a lot of info to the OP's question ..... comparing features and spec's from the manuals is the best way to get accurate info of the products ....
