Default Is there a cheap eq to the Olympus FL-40

Looking around the web for a cheaper FL-40 Flash. Not wanting to go to a pure slave flash. I don't think a Slave will reduce the red eye. Am I wrong?

Great Information. Told me about everything I needed to know I did run into the Sunpak 433D out there looking around. Forgive my ignorance but they make these for nikon, canon, but not Olympus. Is there any crossing for Olympus. The more I research it really looks like the Olympus FL-40 is what I would like to have but the price is just too High. I might have to settle for the FL20 and put a bit of a diffuser on it and see if this works.

I would still like to find a low priced Slave flash that I could set off to the side for indoor pictures.

Default Soligor

As far as I know, Soligor has not started shipping yet. Also, they do not have a US distributor (but then you can get Promaster in the US which doesn't have any distribution outside of the US).
