Powerful, Lightweight, Compact FL-700WR Electronic Flash with Wireless Radiowave Communication

The Olympus FL-700WR flash features a compact, lightweight design that makes it easy to handle for handheld shooting and a high output with a maximum guide number of 42. Supporting wireless radiowave communication, the dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof performance delivers reliability in any shooting situation.

Powerful, compact, and lightweight

A high output at a maximum guide number of 42 is achieved in a compact, lightweight body weighing approximately 303 g (body only). The angle of coverage is 24-150mm[*].

Dustproof, splashproof, freezeproof to -10℃

The FL-700WR features dustproof, splashproof, freezeproof performance to -10℃. When paired with the excellent reliability of the OM-D E-M1X, E-M1 Mark III, or E-M5 Mark III, the system can handle any scenario.

High-speed recycle time

The FL-700WR features a short charging time of approximately 1.5 seconds[1] even at full output, resulting in a short wait time and easier shooting. At 1/16 output when using 10 fps tracking sequential shooting, the flash can fire[2] for more than 50 frames.

Use as a wireless radiowave communication commander or receiver

This flash supports wireless radiowave communication. This enables stable communication even in bright outdoor conditions and in places where there are obstructions. Communication is possible up to 30 meters. The flash is equipped with both a commander and receiver.

Supports up to 3 groups, unlimited multi-flash shooting

Multi-flash unit photography is possible with up to three flash groups. An unlimited number of flash units can be connected.

Scan to detect unused channels

When used as a commander, the flash can scan to detect unused channels.

Easily adjust the output with a single hand

When used as a receiver, the flash is equipped with X-RCV (individual settings) for adjusting the sync mode and flash output settings on the flash. The dial can be operated with a single hand. This design feature makes it easy to operate even during handheld off-camera flash photography.
