    I have just read John Fosters review of the E-PL1, the good news from my point of view is that my old FL50 flash is compatible with the above despite what I had read earlier on another site saying this was not so. I had to use a FL50r.

    This poor information on sites without a correction is really annoying.

    The confusion is probably about the R factor. The E-PL1 will wirelessly trigger the FL-50R off camera. The FL-50 will give you great results on camera or off-camera with a lead.

    Hi Bill I thoroughly agree with you over the R factor, unfortunately this was not stated in the article I had read previously. Still it is nice to know I would not have that expense, I wonder if my old T32 would be OK. I know it is on my old E1. That has been tried and tested by myself. I have not tried it on my E30.

    Bill thanks for posting that site. I had forgotten about the trigger voltage problems.
