    i'm thinking of picking up some oly flashes. is it possible to use a pop-up flash just as a ttl trigger for off-camera oly flashes or do you need to have a flash mounted on the hot shoe?

    Yes, most Olympus units can be triggered by the pop-up flash, and go for the models (FL-36 and bigger) that have sideways-swivelling heads. Just make sure (if buying second-hand) that the seller passes onto you the plastic flat plate which acts as a stand and has a tripod bush in the bottom of it! Sometimes they genuinely lose these, but some people want to keep these, to use with other flashguns they have!
