A smaller version of the FL-50. It has a moveable head, and it is very accurate.
Uses all AA batteries, and CR-V3.

Pro's : Plug and Play, TTL exposure worked great.
Con's : Battery Life, recharge time - I used alkaline batteries and had to change the batteries once during about 200 pictures. Sometimes the flash didn't fire because I was taking pictures to quickly.
Price paid : $199.99 available at local Ritz camera store
Other Info : I was going on a trip to Saudi Arabia and the day before I left was asked to survey damage to a Loran station that had been broken into. Having worked there before I knew that no electricity meant pitch black conditions so I had to have something a little stronger than than the on camera flash.

Pictures are here : http://lorsta.org/Salwa/index.html

Equipment used - E500 with the 14-45mm kit lens. Everything set to Auto

I have not had enough time to test as fill in flash outside.

I would recommend this flash to anybody that needs a flash for general purpose and the on camera isn't strong enough.
