You're talking about the Four-Thirds spec flash? All the Four-Thirds and Micro Four-Thirds bodies can use the same flash units. That's a standardized thing. There shouldn't be (read - shouldn't) any problems with it on the E-PL1, if it was made for the Four-Thirds standard.

If you're talking about the Vivitar flash spec'ed for another brand, then just use a single-contact trigger or sync.

Right, thanks for the answers.

I'm not sure if this unit was made for the standard "M43" ... just read that it is compatible with Olympus dSLR...

But I think if it works with pana m43, it might work for oly m43 too...

I liked the price and its size ... I'm just afraid of some incompatibility with my e-pl1...that could damage the hot shoe of the camera or something...
