Re: Either the Olympus FL-300R or the Metz 24AF? (n/t)

Fl300 does not bounce. Metz 24 and Nissin i40 are okay-ish but still to big to carry on the E-PL E-PM or GF cameras for longer periods of time. Still hoping for something like the one that comes with the OMD but to be able to bounce. The RX100 tiny flash does wonders in smaller places/rooms.

The FL300 tilts backwards (see image below) but I don't know how convenient to use it is. The Metz 24AF (TTL) and 20 C-2 (Old-fashioned Auto; non TTL variant) are really fine on the E-PL and GF cameras. They are not as slim as the 300R but still reasonably light (120gr without batteries) and easy to bounce.
