View Full Version : Panasonic DMW-FL28 Flash questions

10-01-2004, 10:42 AM
I'm having a hard time finding any info about this flash. Can someone tell me is the flash head swivels both horizontally and vertically?

Anyone using this flash with their FZ20? If so, how do the two work in tandem?

I have the FL-28, and yes Panasonic yet again tries to elude us as to its specs. And it only swivels up and down, not side to side. It also doesn't give you settings based on any specific ISO. I have come to realize that it only knows ISO 100. I had gotten advice on Steves Digicams forums by someone who bought the Sunpack 383. It is like 60 bucks (at B&H photo-www.bhphotovideo.com). It works great, it swivels in all direction, and it looks good. I did a comparison test with the FL28 and the on camera flash. And the on camera flash did a better job. The colors were brighter (and more saturated). After I saw that I never used my FL28 again. I shoot with the Sunpack now. The Sunpack is about a third larger than the FL-28 which seems to be its only downside. Hope this was helpful.
