Review – Olympus FL-900R

This review basically came about after a number of conversations I’ve had regarding my “run n gun” setup, which to date, was a Metz 64 AF-1. My original reason for choosing the Metz was the ability to use an external battery pack for reduced recycling times, whereas the current Olympus lineup have no external power option. It kinda came to a head when I did the review for the Quadralite Reporter 200 TTL (Godox AD200 variant), as I found the Reporter 200 to be far more consistent in TTL mode than my Metz. There was a brief conversation with a commenter onLighting Rumours, and it made me reassess my “run n gun” kit. Hence the Olympus FL-900R.
