Using Studio Light triggers on a EM5 mk1

I have tried several makes of hot shoe mounted triggers for studio lights and just cannot get them to work. I tried Olympus but they had no experience of this and did not think they would work. Anyone had any success with the EM5 Mk 1 (they work with the Mk2)

I use PiXeL PAWN TF-364 They work to trigger the flash and can trigger the camera (with the right lead)

Re: Using Studio Light triggers on a EM5 mk1

Been using these for considerable time

https://www.wexphotovideo.com/flash-...e-kit-1525551/

Couldn't ever remember any issues, dusted off my E-M5 mk1 and have just
tested. Manual mode 160th sec and FL-600r mounted on the receiver, triggered the receiver and flash every time.
Would normally use this trigger set on studio flash heads.. with E-M5/E-M1 mk1 and E-M1 mk2 all worked ok.

Regards... Mark

Thanks very much for your response. I am going to try the Pixel Pawn first as it is considerably less expensive. Regards Keith
