Re: Using non-Olympus flashguns

Thanks everyone. All I need to do now is find where I have safely hidden away my Minolta flashguns and order the triggers.

Re: Using non-Olympus flashguns

As I was watching this thread Patricia walked in the room and asked if I would be interested in some camera gear her late uncle had left her that had been in a cupboard for 8-9years I think. Inside the bag was a Nikon EM camera, with a 50mm 1.8 lens attached (I have already sent off for the AF confirm adaptor on ebay) and a Miranda 500-CD flash unit.
Would any one know if the flash would work on the E-1?

Regards

Re: Using non-Olympus flashguns

Hi Peterl
I have used my Vivitar 283 flashgun that had 370volts across the terminals on my E1 with no problems I believe(from the web) the E1 is actually rated to 500v but 250 volts to be safe
Cheers
Mick


ps see ebay auction No 350254710848 he is quoting 9volts so should be ok

Re: Using non-Olympus flashguns

Thank you skyman1. I was informed by a friend that he had found some info to say it was around 7.75v so that seems ok. Do you hot shoe mount yours?

Regards
