Re: Well, we have a good idea as to what it's not!

The FL-36R can be mounted on a flash bracket, but that would defeat the purpose of the smaller body. Or if the the camera is to be held one handed (used with small lens only), the other hand can hold the FL-36R. The pros is that this lends to even more creative lighting than with bracket. The cons is that it would look really strange.

Holding the flash extended in one hand while shooting with the other is a huge advantage to the impromptu m4/3 strobist and one that doesn't get discussed much. I do this all the time. I may look really strange, but my photos look great!

Cheers,
Rik
