The high intensity Olympus FL-900R Electronic Flash is compact and lightweightwith all-weather construction andis specifically designed to complement the Olympus OM-D series cameras and M. Zuiko Pro lenses. The flash is compatible with Olympus TTL metering and supports several advanced camera functions to produce optimal lighting even in challenging environments.
Supports Advanced Shooting Modes
The FL-900R supports the Olympus TTL system allowing for use with special shooting modes such as High Res Shot, Focus Stacking, Focus Bracketing as well as automatic exposure and high-speed sync for a wide range of photographic expression.
High Speed Sequential Shooting with Fast Recycle Time
State-of-the-art charging circuitry provides a fast recycle time of 2.5 seconds, allowing 10 fps sequential shooting and tracking performance that allows you to capture split-second motion and fast-moving subjects.
Enhancing your creative control, the Multi Flash Mode allows you to firethe flash multiple times during a single exposure to capture movement in your images.
Wireless Remote Shooting
Expanding the versatility of the flash, wireless TTL metering/triggering allows high-intensity, on and off-camera multi-flash photography. The flash can be used as a master flash to trigger other RC compatible flash units, as a slave, or as a commander flash using the included IR filter.
Built-in Video Light
A built-in 1.5w LED video light provides constant illumination and acts as a focus assist light when shooting stills. It has 6 output levels with a maximum output of 100 lux at 1m. The light can be used in auto or manual mode and allows power adjustment from full to 1/16, at 1EV steps.
Swivel Headwith Wide Panel Diffuser
The Flash head tilts from 90° to -7° vertically and rotates 180° horizontally for wide bounce capabilities. It covers a zoom range of 12-100mm (24-200mm in 35mm equiv.) that can be expanded to 7mm-10mm (14-20mm in 35mm equiv.) when using the pull-out diffuser.
With an IPX1-rated weather resistance, the Olympus FL-900R can operate in temperatures down to -10 °C. The level of weather sealing is the same as Olympus’s high-end cameras, making it ideal for use in a variety of weather conditions and climates.

The Olympus FL-900R is easy to use with its intuitive control dial and LCD screen. It’s conveniently powered by 4 x AA batteries that offer up to 200 shots, depending on battery type. Light weight and compact, it’s designed to pair perfectly with the OM-D series cameras.
