Built-in flash and wireless flash control from the camera body
Compatible external flash FL-50R, FL-36R
Control method Triggered and controlled by built-in flash light
Modes TTL Auto (TTL pre-flash mode), Auto, Manual, FP TTL Auto, FP Manual
Group setting 3 groups
Number of channels 4 channels

So you can use an FL-36/50R Gun in the off camera TTL Mode.

If you don't use the Olympus Guns, then simply go with any gun with a slave mode and use manual settings.
Where do you find these modes ? Are they hidden until you connect an external flash ?
Also if its triggered by pop up flash... does that mean you end up with 2 flashes on your photo the pop up & external?
Thanks for advice
