    I own this cheap little flash I got off ebay http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/CY20-CY-...90775596279?pt=AU_Flashes&hash=item2c6b1c94f7

    Worked a charm previously on my K-01, GXR and even the EPM2, but for some reason, it will not fire on my EM5, just wondering what I'm doing wrong, in the past all I had to do was switch the in camera flash setting to M mode and it was all good. I've checked to ensure it's fully inserted in the hotshoe.

    The Olympus tiny flash that comes with the EM5 works fine.

    Thanks in advance.
