After a very long wait, Flashpoint and Godox TTL and HSS support will soon be available for Micro Four Thirds cameras, with the release of the Flashpoint Zoom Mini R2 TTL Speedlite for Olympus and Panasonic!
The Zoom Mini R2 TTL for Olympus are Flashpoint’s version of the compact Godox TT350-O radio Master Speedlite, and are now available for pre-order from Adorama for $84.90.
Most significantly the Zoom Mini R2 TTL (and Godox TT350-O) provide a 2.4GHz radio Master mode, which can fire and control the complete Flashpoint and Godox 2.4GHz Flash System.
Which finally opens up the Olympus and Panasonic Micro Four Thirds camera system to a range of popular large and small off camera strobes, with full TTL and HSS supported!
NOTE – Many of the current flash units will also require a user installed firmware update to add the Olympus / Panasonic radio slave mode (at least for TTL use).
A stand alone transmitter unit for Olympus / Panasonic will be available later in the year. And as Flashpoint and Godox are currently in the process of developing a new X2 transmitter, there is a good chance the Olympus / Panasonic version may go straight to the new design once ready.
The Zoom Mini R2 TTL provide simple control for 3 remote slave groups, with a radio range of approximately 30 meters.
Powered by just 2 AA batteries, and providing a guide number of 36 meters (ISO 100, @105mm).
Recycle times are from approximately 0.1 – 2.2 seconds, and provide up to 210 full power pops per battery charge.
