Re: Olympus FL-LM3 Flash

As others have mentioned it’s great for triggering an off camera strobe. I bought one from KEH for around $40 to trigger my Metz 15-MS 1 on my GX8. It works great for this purpose, though  the flash foot requires a simple physical modification to seat properly on GX8.

I haven used the FL-LM3 as a primary strobe on any camera. Generally if I know I will need a flash I bring a larger strobe, either a larger Metz, or An Olympus FL36R. The LM3 only has. Guide number 9 meters at iso100, plus it sits  close to the lens and on the same axis, so without bouncing it you may end up with a snapshot look
