Elinchrom D Lite & EM1 MK2 SORTED!

I need to use my studio flash at a club night tomorrow. Checking it out, flash is fine but will not be triggered by my EM1 MK2. The Mk 1 fires it OK, but not the Mk 2.
I check the manual and cannot see why it will not work.
Any ideas, or do I have to use my "Old" camera tomorrow night?

Sorted now thanks.

Not in silent shutter mode are you? I believe, but haven't tested, that flash will not work in that mode. Just a thought .... probably wrong though Cheers

It is in silent shutter mode, but that was not the problem, it was the flash setting. When I put it on fill in, it worked a treat.

Shooting menu 2 / Anti-shock/Silent / Silent Mode Settings and set Flash Mode to (Allow)

That should still fire the flash, if the camera is set in silent shutter mode. I find it works ok, when I use my flash triggers to fire studio heads.
