    Is there anyway one can use this flash with the M5 II where the flash is off camera on a stand and is wirelessly triggered by the camera? How specifically can this be done?

    Thanks, Larry

    It can certainly be done - I've done exactly that using my Metz 44 and Oly E-PM2. I used the little clip on flash that came with the camera to remotely trigger the Metz (ie. it uses light so has to be line-of-sight).
    I can't remember exactly what settings I had to use however, but it wasn't difficult.

    These are the instructions for the FL-300 in RC mode. I think the Metz should work in a similar way:


    With the E-M10 I think the pop-up flash must be open even if you do not want to use it (you can turn it off in the flash configuration menu shown in the picture). I do not know if this can help.

    I've used a Phottix StratoII for Canon transmitter and receiver with my EM1 / Metz combo. Triggers fine but no TTL.
