View Full Version : Oly OM Flash

8th May 2011, 06:10 PM
I'm just asking if anyone has ever tried using OM flash on a digital Oly.
The reason I ask is that there are loads for sale in Ffordes.
So I guess not. But you guys would know a lot more than me.

I used a T20 on my E-P1 and it works fine. I can't remember which mode I was in on the flash but I set the shutter speed to 1/160th and the aperture to F4 (where possible with the kit lens) and snapped away, correcting any over/under exposure.

No probs and three only cost me 30 on eBay. It just takes some time or skill (I used time).

If you have any concerns re voltage, use an "I SHOOT" remote trigger, cuts out any worries, :)

I used to use my old T32 on my E-510 without any (obvious) problems.

So, just for that warm and fuzzy feeling, can I put an OM flash on my hotshoe (e520) and not cook the internals when the flash fires?

Any recommendations? I have never used flash and cannot afford to buy the fl36/fl50s just to try and see if I get on with them. I am looking more for a 30 solution than 130 one.

Thanks in advance,

I'll bring my T32 up to Skye and you can have a shot.

So a T32 would work ok?
