    Just wondering if it's possible to use my canon 430exII with my new ep3.

    Not sure about the Canon flash, but my Nikon SB-900 works in Auto mode. I just have to dial in the focal length and aperture. Exposure is handled by the flash.

    I use PCB Cybersync triggers and the transmitter works with no issues on the E-P3's hotshoe to fire my Nikon SB units or PCB White Lightning monolights. When using OCF flash though, I go in Manual mode, both camera and flash. Couldn't comment on TTL.

    My 430exII works with the panny GH2 in TTL mode and manual zoom, it just slips on the hotshoe and locks in place

    It's a bit underexposed but a bit of flash compensation fixes it.

    Not sure about the oly compatibility though

    It works great, i just tried my 580EX on my E-PL2. Not sure if ETTL works i just put it on manual mode.

    Anyone know if the 430ex works on the Panasonic G3 ?
    I'd like to get this to use on both my 550D and G3 :smile:
