    will you recommend this for travel on a Panasonic body?

    i basically need a small external flash, on-board, just for fill and a stronger alternative vs the on-board flash, swivel preferred to bounce the light indoors, will use manual mode over ttl.

    any other recommendations?

    thanks!

    I don't think the FL-220 tilts or swivels. Look at the Olympus FL36 / FL36R. Not quite as small, but much more versatile, and cheaper than the equivalent Panasonic FL-360.

    The "R" in the new version means remote flash capability, which the Panny bodies don't support. I bought a used FL36 on ebay for much less than a new one.
