FL-50 working with the OM-d E-M1 Mk ii

So far my casual usage of the FL-50 flashgun and the OMD EM1 mkii has proved acceptible, I have read on here that you should use the mechanical shutter. Wisdom dictates one needs to use a shutter speed of less than 1/150th sec.

Are there any restrictions on using the instructions for the latest "big" Oly flashguns with a Fl-50 with the OMD EM1 mkii. The documentation has dropped off any reference to the older flashguns.

Re: FL-50 working with the OM-d E-M1 Mk ii

I have used the FL-50Rs up to 1/250s quite regularly. Sometimes I have even gone over this, without using FP mode.


We often repeat the mistakes we most enjoy...
