Hi there Everyone!

I don't suppose anyone knows whether the FL-14 flash (I think it shipped with the E-P1) will work on the older E-system cameras? I have a project in mind where I will use the flash tube and fittings from a starblitz macro flash but coupled to an olympus flash to provide the power and control - ideally giving me a fully metered TTL macro flash for a minimal cost.

The Starblitz macro flash works well in manual mode but it's taking me a little while to get used to using it and getting the power level right for really close work.

The FL-14 should be ideal for this use as it is a lower power flash than most of the olympus ones and nearer the rating of the macro flash tube.

Cheers,

Ralph.

How is this project going? Looking forward to seeing what gets wheeled out of the shed!

Hi there RogerRamjet!

I've not got too far yet as inconsiderate people keep outbidding me on ebay! I have the ring flash but still need the FL-14, I'm not in a huge rush so I'll keep watching and bidding and hope I'll get one sometime soon. I'll be sure to post on here when it is ready!

Cheers,

Ralph.
