    I received this flash today and been playing with it whole evening. It works great, perfect exposure, WB, can bounce, macro mode, very small, stylish (cleverly folds for storage), surprisingly powerful. However, I can't make it to work wirelessly (RC mode). I can only fire it in slave mode, simultaneously with E-PL2's built-in flash. Of course, the result is all white, overexposed frame. Am I missing something? Nothing of relevance is in the manual...

    Make sure you turn on RC mode on the camera, then select bank A (or B) on the flash (in other words, both have to be in RC mode to work)

    OT: does the FL-300 tilt upwards more than the normal position?
