I'm guessing this question will make you all laugh, but how the heck do you get a flash to work with the G6? I have the little FL70 attached, mechanical shutter on, and nothing seems to happen. I've checked the menu in the SetUp menu, and think I have the right things checked... what the heck am I doing wrong? :) I've tried in M, A and S. No digital zoom is on, nothing that I can see. Have I missed something simple?

Roddy, if this list is correct, you are doing nothing wrong. The FL70, according to this PDF datasheet from Panasonic, doesn't work with the DMC-G6.

I have no idea how much trouble you went to to find that out, Richard, but thank you - brilliant. I'd never have got to that page in a million years.

I can now stop kicking the dog, too. :)
Roddy - I'd like to say that I spent literally hours searching - but I would be telling porkies.

See below - note what the top hit is, and then second from top - :cool:

Hope your dog has thick skin.
