Don't risk it and get a Wein Safe-sync hotshoe to hotshoe, then you can use any older flash, hotshoe or corded....about $50.00 I think...I just got the GF1. Just in time for the marriage celebration of a nephew. Using my old vivitar 3900 would be great for this occasion but is it possible? I certainly do not want to damage my brand new GF1!
I doubt it - the hotshoe provides mechanical stability for the EVF. Any home made adapter would look and be rather clumsy imho. The evf connector seems to be a proprietry pin - probably unobtainable after market except as a mic connector.Do you know if there is a way to connect the EFV over it? It looks like the signal for the screen is going through the connector on the side not through the flash shoes.
