Well aware of this issue. It's a 7.5V trigger, which I'm happy to assume won't hurt my E-P1, which is rated to 6.5V, much. There's always a margin.I would be careful with using really old flash because some of them have a high coltage sync and will fry your camera. If you are unsure use a multi-meter to test the voltage.
I use nikon sb28, sb600, sb900 and the ebay yn 560 flash. Non of these flash have ttl support, I shoot in manual only.
I just picked up a discounted E-PL1 and already had a FL-36R for my E-620. Works great on the E-PL1 and isn't too big. Tilt, swivel, more power, and wireless for about the same price as the FL-14. Use Sanyo Eneloop batteries (or similar high density rechargeables) and the recovery time between flashes is very tolerable.Wanted to get a a smaller compact flash, but tilt is important. I like the design of the FL 14, but no tilt and only in silver now? Yuk. (I have a black E-PL2)
Thanks, Lee. I was put off by complaints about the FL-36R being slow at cycling. But, like you said, a freshly charged pair of nice NiMH's will improve the cycling.I just picked up a discounted E-PL1 and already had a FL-36R for my E-620. Works great on the E-PL1 and isn't too big.
Just a note, the Oly F-14 comes in blk as well as silver, but as you know no tilt/swilval.Wanted to get a a smaller compact flash, but tilt is important. I like the design of the FL 14, but no tilt and only in silver now? Yuk. (I have a black E-PL2)
That actually looks alright; I was imagining it would be very top heavy. I guess since wireless works, it has all of the features of Oly FL-36R.Does this help? I haven't had much time yet to play with it, but all functions (except built-in AF illuminator) are working with my E-PL2. Even the wireless works perfectly from all around a room. Interface is sublime, build quality is very nice. Can I answer anything else?
I lowered my Stroboframe bracket all the way down, and ordered the Oly FL-CB05. Looks like it will make a sweet handling rig should I need to shoot lots of flash shots again in both vertical and horizontal orientations.
