LumiQuest on my Olympus FL-36r WORKS!!!
on May 1, 2013
Using the Olympus E520, I love the quality of outdoor pictures...however taking indoor pictures with just the pop up flash wasn't cutting it. I purchased the FL-36r flash from Olympus and attached this bad boy - - WOW!!!! Whoever said you need to have several thousand dollars worth of camera equipment to take a quality picture, has never tried shooting indoors with the slave flash and the LumiQuest SoftBox attached.
1 other thing....If you're not willing to attach the hook side of the adhesive to your flash, I recommend purchasing the strap that comes with this item - - albeit NOT worth the $10.00 additional charged, it is nice not to have to stick the "velcro" to the flash that would probably come detached when removing the LumiQuest from the flash.
Attaching the strap to the flash was a breeze with a light rubberized backing which keeps the strap in place on the flash and the soft loop side of the "velcro" on the outside of the strap. The rough hook side of the "velcro" on the LumiQuest simply attaches VERY WELL I might add, to the soft side of the strap...which is why I mention that if you are not careful when removing the SoftBox from your flash with the adhesive velcro, it will come off - - save the headache and hassle, and just spend the money on the strap!
Simple to say - - this was a WISE INVESTMENT!!!
