I am hopeful the more experienced here can provide some information regarding off camera flash and the shutter sync speed. I have searched the net and cannot locate a definite answer on this. I currently own an EPM1, EP1 and FL36R flash. I wish to experiment with using the flash off the camera in manual mode. I am about to purchase a radio trigger set up so that the flash can be used with either camera, and possibly a 2nd flash unit can be used in certain situations. Following previous advice here, I believe that would be the most practical set up. My questions are; 1. Does the shutter sync speed apply when using a flash unit off camera in manual mode? 2. If I was to purchase a 2nd flash unit for manual mode off camera use, are any members aware of any of the Chinese items currently on Ebay that are reliable and have a reasonable lifespan and build quality. Worst case I cold purchase another FL36R, but that would be a little excessive for the use it would get. 3. With regards to radio flash triggers, is there any method of triggering an off camera flash whilst having the VF3 attached to the EPM1? I highly doubt this, but thought it was worth asking? It would be of great benefit on a sunny day when the LCD is hard to view fully. Any advice / information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
