Panasonic Lumix DMW FL360L

Ive been searching everywhere, including dprview and theres not much about this little wireless TTL flash.

I recieve it yesterday, and have been playing with it to get to know a little more about it.

First thing that caught my atention was the size, it looks like a shrinked version of a big strobe. It seem well built but every little thing makes it toyish looking Unit. I already owe (for a couple of years) 2 NISSIN DI466, wich responded fairly well so far, but this FL360, all though smaller, it is something different, by far. Inspite of the the huge price difference, both are ttl, both work as master or slave,  both share about the same power, but one thing FL360L makes the price bar be so high, is tis capability to wirelesly mesure light and distance to expose the right amount of light.

Now a few questions arise:

Coming from Canon, I used to under or overexpose the flash wiressly from the camera, and I noticed the Flash ajustment option on the camera doesnt work, while working on wireless flash. So, how do I add more or less light, is there any trick Ive missed?

The Led illuminator, can only be turned on from the flash? when set on Auto, isnt it supposed to work as a modeling light?

Thanks Ser
