    I know a lot of accessories are not compatible with the EPL 1, but I thought this flash was. When I slide the flash into the hotshoe, it won't turn on, until I remove it. Are there any special settings I need to know about ? I thought it was out of the box, on the camera, and shoot. Am I doing something wrong, or should I return it ?
    Thanks in advance.. BAK

    was there a firmware update for it? otherwise i can think of another reason: that the flash might be only ap2 compatible, and the epl1 was the same as the ep2 in that it did not have the ap2.

    edit: oops, this is not the flash that shipped with the epl3 and em1 is it?

    I don't know of any firmware updates. The latest had to do with the use of the VF-3 ( I have the VF-2 ).
    Don't know what was shipped with the other models.
    This one had a recall awhile back. But that was for a certain batch.
    Thanks anyway. I think I'll just return it.
