  • Additional Information

Designed to pair perfectly with Micro Four Thirds system cameras, the FL-900R offers a versatile zoom range of 12-100mm, which is equivalent to 24-200mm in 35mm terms. This can be easily expanded to cover 7-10mm lenses, 14-20mm equivalent, through the use of the built-in diffusion panel. Also, the ability to tilt from -7 to 90° and rotate 180° left and right permits for numerous bounce flash setups. Another advantage of this flash are full wireless TTL features, including master, slave, and commander modes with 4 flash groups. Additionally, it offers your standard slow, high-speed, 1st and 2nd curtain sync options as well as a stroboscopic mode.

HIGH INTENSITY AND HIGH PERFOR­MANCE
The high-intensity FL-900R boasts a guide number of 58 meters (at ISO 100) and covers a wide range of focal lengths with an electronic zoom head. A built-in wide panel enables you to use wider focal length lenses and have perfect coverage, and a catchlight panel illuminates your portrait subjects’ eyes effortlessly.


DUST AND SPLASH­PROOF CON­STRUCTION
The FL-900R boasts dust and splashproof construction that perfectly complements weatherproof OM-D camera bodies and all M.Zuiko PRO lenses, enabling you to illuminate your subject in the harshest of weather. Dark and stormy conditions are no match for your complete OM-D system.


MULTIPLE FLASHES, NO WIRES
With Olympus’ RC (remote control) system, you have access to a variety of wireless flash options. Use the FL-900R as a master flash to trigger additional RC compatible flash units, as a slave in one of four independently controlled groups, or as a commander flash using the included IR filter.

Four available channels mean the RC Mode is resistant to interference from other photographers, so you can comfortably shoot events when other photographers are nearby.


BUILT-IN LED VIDEO LIGHT
The built-in 1.5w LED light in the FL-900R is a useful tool as both a continuous source for video shooting and as a focus assist light when shooting stills. One-touch on/off control lets you quickly access 100 Lux power (at 1m) when you find yourself in a low-light situation.


ADVANCED FEATURES WITH OM-D E-M1 MARK II
When paired with the OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera body, the FL-900R becomes a sequential shooting powerhouse. The flash fires continuously at 10 frames per second for 100 shots at 1/128 power or 30 times at 1/32 power! State-of-the-art charging circuitry enables the FL-900R to recycle in just 2.5 seconds when shooting sequentially, so you’re assured of getting the shot. An improved FP mode with expanded range lets you shoot beyond E-M1 Mark II’s sync speed without the worry of overexposure.

The new Multi Mode allows you to capture movement in your photos, by firing the flash multiple times during one exposure, further enhancing your creative control.
