Some 3rd party flashes for the petite mirrorless bodies look very attractive.  
This guy is only a tad over 80 bucks and has built in wireless transmitter and 
receiver--does HSS too!


Godox is sold as Flashpoint at Adorama--identical as far as one can tell.  

GN is 36M despite it only holds 2 batteries. Nissin i40 which costs 3 times 
more, and has 4 batteries, Guide is 40M.
The cool transmitter sold separately thoughtfully also has a hot shoe.  The 
Nissin i40 recycle time is better of course.  The Nissin system can trigger 
cross system TTL flash with the proper receiver--very cool. Canon flash to be 
triggered TTL for Oly--no problemo.
It can also  change TTL to manual equivalence at a push of a button which can 
than be  remotely adjusted as  to avoid the vagaries of repeat TTL metering.  
The i40 at least is much more finicky to keep in HSS mode as it has to be 
retold to do so every time the head is adjusted.

Hard to beat the price/power/capability of the cute Godox/Flashpoint.  Reviews 
seem good on FM.  The flashes seem much more economical than any other trigger 
system I have seen including the newish radiopoppers. 

I know Dr. Flash would have an opinion.

Student of and missing Dr. Flash, Mike
