    Hello,
    Sometimes on my OM-D when I am using the stock flash, it does not fire when I press the shutter but a sec later. I have tried various flash settings. As a result I do miss some shots.
    What could be the reason?

    Thank you.

    Your probably firing it at a faster rate than the flash can recycle. Watch for the flash symbol on the upper right hand of the display: if its blinking, the flash is not ready to fire.

    Thank you very much.

    Also what focus mode do you use, S-AF or C-AF?

    Thanks once again.

    It has no effect on the flash, but i usually use single af

    Looks like I am missing something. It does fires little later on iauto mode. In other modes it is fine. Some people on the net are also complaining about the same thing.
