So I started the other thread. I'm pretty convinced that my hot shoe on the E-M5 is defective. That said, I can't seem to use the FL-36 in RC mode either. I've turned on RC in shooting menu 2, I've got my camera set up generically just to try to get things working. I set the metering mode to evaluative. When I call up the screen I have TTL, no exposure adjustment, and regular flash, not FP. And then I just set the flash to RC mode. The FL-36R fires but all exposures are very very dark. Is there something else I need to do to use RC flash with the E-M5? Thanks again.
