new m4/3 flash needed badly! Argh!@
Jul 13, 2011

I don't gripe much, but here I go:

micro 4/3 is about portable and high quality. Yet, the flash options are pretty crappy unless you go larger with a FL36R (which I have) and the FL50R. The other small flash units that would be great on the GF-1 or really any of the m4/3 bodies are not that great. They either lack bounce capability or are just plain ugly like the new one from Olympus that was just announced.

What I would LOVE to see is something like the 270EX I use on the Canon G11 or like the Nikon SB400. It can't be that hard to do and I think they would sure sell a heck of a lot better than the other small junk they are putting out. Until that time, the FL36R will suffice, but I would love something OEM and smaller.
