This high performance flash features a dust‑, splash‑ and freezeproof (‑10°C) construction in a compact and lightweight housing. When combined with the weather sealed cameras of the OM‑D series, and M.Zuiko PRO lenses, you do not need to worry about shooting in harsh environments.
This high‑intensity flagship flash comes with a maximum guide number of 42, while the combination of the camera's built‑in image processor (TruePic) with the TTL synchronization technology enables optimal lighting during your photo shootings.
As the flash is equipped with a wireless lightning mode you can make use of high‑intensity multi‑flash photography via wireless control up to a distance of 30m, which enables you to control up to 3 flash groups and an unlimited number of flash units, to select whether a group fires or not, to compensate for the flash output, and to adjust various settings. One other very well accepted extra is the slave function‑ you can simply attach the flash to the hot shoe of a camera and use it as the master flash while using the commander function.
Of course the unique Olympus High Res. Shot, Focus Stacking, and Focus Bracketing functions are supported too and shorter shooting intervals than before are now available! The FL‑700WR is equipped with an LED light for movies, which is effective for shooting OM‑D Movies in low light or backlit conditions.
High Intensity Flash in a Compact Lightweight Design
The high-intensity FL-700WR boasts a guide number of 42 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.
IPX1 Certified Dust and Splashproof Construction
The FL-700WR boasts dust and splashproof construction that perfectly complements weatherproof OM-D camera bodies and all M.Zuiko PRO lenses. An IPX1 rating gives you peace of mind when shooting extreme conditions like a driving rain or heavy snow.
Wireless Radiowave Control
Integrated Wireles Radiowave functionality allows the FL-700WR to act as a flash commander or receiver* with full TTL capability. Up to 3 channels of unlimited flash units can be fully synchronized to create stunning lighting setups at a distance of 30m – no line-of-sight required!
Built-in LED Video Light
The built-in 1.5w LED light in the FL-700WR 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 X and E-M1 Mark II
When paired with the OM-D E-M1X or E-M1 Mark II camera body, the FL-700WR becomes a sequential shooting powerhouse. The flash fires continuously at 10 frames per second for 50 shots at 1/16 power* and state-of-the-art charging circuitry enables the FL-700WR to recycle in just 1.5 seconds2 when shooting sequentially, so you’re always assured of getting the shot.
Multi Mode1,3 allows you to capture movement in your photos, by firing the flash multiple times during one exposure, further enhancing your creative control.
