    Hi all

    As subject.

    Anyone know what the extra hotshoe contact is for on the EM5 Mk2

    Olympus & Panasonic m4/3 cameras normally have three contacts in addition to the central trigger contact but I notice the new EM5 Mk2 now has four contacts plus the central trigger contact.

    Anyone know what the extra one is for?

    Thanks

    Paul

    Power for the new flash that comes with the camera.
