    Hi guys, just curious if something like this will work to fire EF via PC cord on the E-P2?

    FlashZebra.com: PC to Flash Hotshoe Adapter (Item #0065)

    Been a long time since I used anything but proper PC connection or Pocket Wizard...

    For that matter would a PW work?

    Thanks all:)

    I have a Wein Safety Sync that I use with my strobes.
    Not only does it sync to PC but ensures the voltage won't blow the camera up.

    No. In fact the last line of the listing says it's not for the camera's hot shoe. Judging by the bottom plate, there's nothing there to communicate with the camera.

    A PW works fine. I've tested mine with my GF1.

    Thanks guys. My concern was at face value being able to trigger strobes, and if EVF is off the camera, seems I can. That's great:)

    PW would look huge on this camera LOL...

    Please do not put any of the Olympus flash on that hot shoe. The center gap do not seem to have enough space to avoid the Olympus flash communication pins (FL14 to FL-50) from shorting out.

    I you want to remote triggering the flash, why not get the Pocket Wizard or it's compatibles. You have to make sure that the remote triggers have Olympus listed in it's list of cameras.
