I never really thought it was, but I have now modified it for use with my Oly EPL3 and added a plate and handles. Its quite negative now.

Go for it! My advice is to use as many LED's as possible as they will never match a strobe for light output.

Here is another I took. Focus isnt nearly as sharp.
This was with my G11 after a partial flood. It wouldnt allow me to control anything so it was set in auto.

f4
1/125
ISO160
