Today Olympus announces the FL-BK04 Flash Bracket and FL-BKM03 Twin Flash Bracket.   Both of these brackets are designed to work seamlessly with the E-30 and E-3’s dual-axis LCD monitors for easy free-angle Live View shooting.

Flash Bracket FL-BK04:
Photographers can configure Flash Bracket FL-BK04 in a wide variety of ways to meet their unique shooting needs. The bracket allows for easy mounting of an external flash on either the left or right side of the camera for vertical flash shooting.  The opening angle of the arm can be set in 45 degree increments to adjust the distance between the lens and the flash, and the mounting height can be adjusted in 5 steps for versatile positioning. When configured with the FL-50R, users can secure the bracket to the side of the flash for greater stability.

Twin Flash Bracket FL-BKM03

Users can freely adjust the arm angle and flash position to make flash shooting possible using any Zuiko Digital lens, including ultra-wide-angle lenses.  Photographers can configure the bracket with the FL-50R/FL-36R Electronic Flash to create a wireless remote dual-flash system without complicated wiring. The bracket arm can be folded down for storage or transportation.
