Hi,
I'd like to use my old Olympus T32 flash with my E510. Not being an expert on voltages etc., does anyone know of any problems/ incompatabilites with this combination? (Should I avoid it, perhaps?), and is there any info available on old OM flashes with the Exxx bodies I can look at?

Thanks,
Simon.

I think it is safe. I have used a T32 on an E-1, I emailed Oly tec support first to check and they said that the T-series flashes are OK. You won't get TTL auto with it because the contacts and comms protocols are different, but you can use the flash in manual mode or its own idependent auto mode.

Good luck ... John

Thanks for the info, John. I certainly don't want to damage the camera circuitry, yet like many other people, I suspect, I have quite a bit of old OM gear which is worth little on the market now, but still in working order. I used to use the T32 with a Mamiya 645 in manual mode happily, and had some great results from it.

Cheers,
Simon.
