Re: Metering

Don't forget we all started with that first camera...

The spec for the E-420 shows:

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.

We often repeat the mistakes we most enjoy...
