Are you are looking for a new TTL Flash for your Panasonic And Olympus Micro 4/3 camera? Well the new Meike MK320 will work good for some but not all camera models.
Graham Houghton reviews and demonstrates the new MK320P flash unit for Panasonic, Olympus and Leica M4/3 cameras.
The Meike MK320 offers bounce and swivel capabilities to the earlier designed MK300. The new MK320-P version has compatibility with the FZ300/330 and FZ1000 camera but not the FZ100,150 or 200 cameras. It works fine with Olympus Pen and OMD e-M5 as well as the Panasonic G6, GH3 and GX9 cameras he tested it with the flash.
As with most mirrorless cameras you can not use this flash in electronic shutter mode.
There are five different versions of the MeiKe MK320:
MK320C for Canon E-TTL
MK320N for Nikon i-TTL
MK320P for Panasonic and Olympus (Micro Four Thirds)
MK320S for Sony (Multi Interface)
MK320F for Fujifilm
