    I want to learn flash with gh3 but I'm confused with where to start.
    If I bought a flash like Yongnuo YN560 II what transmitter/receiver do I use?
    Flash Trigger,Wireless Remote Flash Triggers for Canon Nikon I'm not sure if this is a good site to order from but I'm just looking for now, I live in Canada.

    Just me, but Cactus V5 or Yongnuo RF-602 triggers are probably a good bet. The RF-603s will not work unmodified on mft hotshoes, because they use the Canon/Nikon TTL pin signals to switch between receiver and transmitter mode, and the mft hotshoe does not give the proper signal to make the on-camera unit become a transmitter, without shorting two of the pins together.

    If you're good with electronics and a soldering iron, you can do this to make a dedicated Tx unit, but...
