The DMW-FL580L External Flash from Panasonic is fully compatible with Panasonic's TTL system and is optimised for use with their Micro Four Thirds series of mirrorless cameras.

An LED light is also included for video shooting, with a 100 lux output at 3.3'. This light doubles as an AF assist during stills shooting. The flash is even capable of high-speed sync and it has a recycle time of 1.7 to 2.7 seconds.
The DMW-FL580L comes with an IR filter, diffuser, orange warming filter, a stand, and a case.
