    Hi All,

    Hopefully someone will have an idea of what's going on. :)

    I've 2x Interfit EX 150 strobes that only fire once via a hot shoe adapter and sync cord with the GH2. On this first time the camera recognises something on it's hotshoe and auto exposes the liveview.

    After that first shot it drops recognition of the connection and the liveview shows a very under exposed image and will not fire the strobes again.

    This also happens with a Metz 20 C-2 Flash directly on the hot shoe. Fires one then nothing after that.

    The same results are also on the Panasonic Lumix LX7.

    A canon camera fires the stobes multiple times just fine through the same hotshoe adapter, sync cord. Not sure what's going on :|

    Thanks for any help!
