View Full Version : Compatibility of Nikon Flash with E-System Cameras

I have heard it said that Nikon flashguns may be compatible with Olympus Four-Thirds cameras.

Has anyone actually tried this?

The reason that I ask is that I am looking for a small-ish flashgun for my OM-D E-M5. My FL50R would make it top heavy to say the least, and the small Olympus guns look rather underpowered, so if Nikon guns do indeed work it would open up the field somewhat.

From what I can see the OM-D will only synchronise at 1/250 second, so I don't need the Super FP function of the FL50 or its equivalent.

I have a small flashgun for my Canon G11 (I think it is a 280 FX or something similar) which is perfect for my needs, but there is nothing similar from Olympus.
