Press Release: Olympus E-3 Digital SLR
The award winning E-3 sets a new benchmark for professional digital SLR photography. To celebrate their flagship camera, Olympus are offering a special promotion to make this outstanding model even more irresistible. For a limited time, you can now claim a free FL-50R wireless flash with any purchase of an E-3.

Forget dealing with cumbersome cables when wanting to get the perfect lighting for your photographic subjects. Thanks to the Olympus remote control (RC) wireless flash unit FL-50R, cordless lighting set-ups are a convenient reality. This wireless unit is ideal for use with the Olympus E-3 DSLR which enables the control of up to three different flash groups directly from the camera – no separate commander unit is required. Photographers benefit from extreme flash unit versatility and never again need to be hindered in the studio or in the field by troublesome wires.

FL-50R – Main features:

  • GN50 power
  • Wireless remote control in three groups (A, B and C)
  • Control settings directly from camera LCD
  • Choice of four channels to avoid interference
  • Extendable transmission distance
  • Option of TTL Auto, Auto, and Manual modes
  • Bounce and swivel head
  • Usual synchronisation speed 1/180 sec
  • Super FP Mode up to 1/4000th sec
  • Built-in diffuser can be used to obtain wide-angle coverage at an 8mm focal length (equivalent to 16mm on a 35mm camera)
  • Red-eye reduction, slow synch and 2nd curtain synch
  • Flash coverage is automatically adjusted in several steps to correspond to the focal length of the lens when zooming
  • Flash recycle time less than 1.3 sec. when optional SHV-1 Flash High-Voltage Set is used

All you need to do to be eligible for this promotion is purchase an E-3 between 1 June and 31 August 2008 and register it online by 11 October 2008. To be eligible for this promotion, just send a copy of your purchase receipt, a print out of your online registration form and the original barcode from your E-3 product box.

The E-3 is now available from around £1100 for body only whilst the FL-50R is available from around £450.
