    Hi everyone!

    I've searched and searched but can't quite find what I'm looking for.

    I have an EM10 and a FL600r hotshoe flash - love it.

    When using the FL600r as a remote flash, the pop-up flash on my Oly fires and I don't want it to.

    I have the flash and camera both set to RC mode and the same channel. In the RC mode on the camera (I think this in found in menu 2) I can adjust the external remote flash accordingly...but when I choose "off" for the pop-up flash it still fires.

    I can turn the pop-up setting to manual and dial down the power output...but I really don't want it to fire at all.

    Any ideas?

  2. The pop-up flash on the E-M10 has to fire to trigger the FL600R. The FL600R uses an optical trigger. I believe the trigger flash is not seen by the camera, but I am still mostly confused by flashes, so I could be wrong.

    Ah ha! That does make sense.

    I guess I was confused by the RC mode thing...I thought that was a "radio transmitter" mode, but I was probably way wrong. Thanks, Harvey!
