The Olympus FL-600R works as advertised on my OM-D E-M5.
Amazon Customer
The LED light of the flash can use also as an AF-light and this is awesome, because it is much brighter than the AF-light of the camera.

Flash output is very accurate and exposure can be adjusted in-camera (at least with the E-M5), via the flash unit itself, or both.

I can't help but wonder why this little gem has received so little lovin' (by way of reviews) so far. IMO, it's a perfect match for the Olympus OM-D E-M5. Its size and light output, as best I can judge, are comparable to the Oly FL-36/36R. However, the FL-600R holds 2 more batteries than the FL-36/36R (4 versus 2), which translates to significantly shorter recycle times, and it has an LED-based AF assist lamp, which unlike the AF assist lamp of the FL-36/36R, is compatible with the AF system of the E-M5. Flash output is very accurate and exposure can be adjusted in-camera (at least with the E-M5), via the flash unit itself, or both.

I'm not into videography, but the LED lamp can be used for constant illumination in video recording mode (I haven't checked if it can be activated manually in still image mode). Paired with the 12-50mm lens, or any other macro lens, the FL-600R is outstanding for macro photography, either camera mounted or in RC mode. Speaking of which, the flash operates outstandingly well in RC mode.

Construction quality of the FL-600R is good, comparable to, if not better than, the Nikon SB-800 flash, which I used before migrating from Nikon to the Micro Four Thirds system. No complaints, at least not yet.

All-in-all, for its specs and price point, I consider the FL-600R to be an outstanding flash and can recommend it highly, and without reservations, to Oly E-M5 owners.

-- Background Info

I own an Olympus E-620, which is a regular 4/3 camera (i.e., DSLR, not mirrorless) and has been wondering whether every function would work well with it. I found out I am not the only person who has this question (I suspect it's because most people who would buy FL-600R are enthusiasts). So when it is on sale, I took the plunge and bought it. The short answer is, YES. It works with E-620 (and probably E-5 also since it is newer than E-620). I am not an expert on flash photography, so I am only testing whether some certain function works or not, but not how well.

This review is tailored for E-620 users, but should contain useful info for all prospective buyers of this flash.

Compatibility table with E-System cameras is here: [...]
Compatibility table with m4/3 cameras is here: [...]
Also notice some of the cameras listed as compatible will not work wirelessly (most notably E-1 will not work with this flash in this regard). E-620 however, does work. See detail below.

-- List of the functions work with E-620.

1. Everything a flash would do when hooked to a hot shoe (Auto, Manual, TTL Auto, FP Auto, FP TTL Auto)
2. Focus assist light works automatically when you half press the shutter, which is the reason why I bought this flash (build-in flash gives that discerning high-frequency strobes that may scare your subject)
3. Wireless flash works with E-620's build-in flash (You need to go to Menu -> Camera 2 -> RC Mode to turn it on)
4. Works as slave flash using E-620's build-in flash and FL-14 (the lack of R after the model number indicates that flash cannot be used as an RC commander, so no RC mode with it. FL-600R must be the slave flash when used in conjunction with FL-14)

The FL-600R does everything just about right. While there are a couple of things I can nit-pick (and I will mention them later), there's so much it gets right that this is an easy 5 star review for me.

First, the size is just right- at 9.3 ounces (no batteries), it's certainly light, and at a size roughly 20% smaller than a 430ex ii, it's not physically that big. As mentioned, if you are an OM-D user, the flash look and feels great on that camera - even better if you've got the grip. It might be a little large or heavy for one of the pen models, but being an owner of a smaller flash (Canon 270ex ii), I can tell you I'd almost always have a slightly larger flash that is more powerful, recycles faster, and can tilt/swivel. And it can tilt from -7 to 90 degrees, as well as swivel a full 360 degrees. It makes bouncing light very easy to do.

There are so many shooting modes available to you- and one that I found as a really fun extra I didn't even know it could do. All of the shooting modes listed- TTL auto, Super FP TTL, Manual, Super FP Manual, Auto, Slave Auto, Slave Manual, and Remote Control. Super FP is Olympus' high speed sync mode, and the RC mode is it's proprietary optical based wireless triggering. But the interesting mode for me are the "Auto" modes. While TTL Auto retains the traditional through the lens metering mode found in most camera systems, the FL-600R is capable of metering with the flash alone- meaning metering can be done on or *OFF* the camera. For instance, in plain "Auto" mode, you dial in the aperture and ISO, and the flash will periodically take a reading of the scene it's pointed at- and attempt to create an exposure accordingly.

I bought this flash only 1.5 months ago. I've used it all of 5 times. Just yesterday the lock mechanism broke off. It still works, and per usual, it is superlative in it's flash capabilities. But now I have to try to concoct some mechanism to re-create the small lever arm that will lock it on to the hot shoe. FWIW, the flash this one replaced was over 10 years old...no problems (it used a dial to lock into the shoe). I'm *very* careful with my gear. I've never broken any camera equipment...ever.

So this plastic slim lever piece may be a problem just waiting to happen. I know I probably got a rare "dud" gear, but I just wanted to let folks know.
