Never used the Beamer on the 360, but I have two Project-a-Flash units that fit the 360. I'd sell one if you want it. The Project-a-Flash is almost functionally identical to the Beamers-I have two of those as well-but the PAF doesn't collapse for easy stowing.

Note that to avoid eyeshine/redeye/greeneye on many mammals and some birds, you'll want to position the flash more than a foot off axis from the lens. Shooting with the flash in the camera shoe often results in "devil eyes".

I realize this is an old thread, but I wanted to state that the FX-1/1B fits the AF 360 FGZ very nicely. Got mine today and it went on without a hitch. I had tried the FX-2, but it was too big.
