Pop-up Flash on E-510 not working
May 2, 2009

I have a year old E-510 and the internal flash has stopped working. Called Olympus and we went through resets and firmware updates to no avail. I suspect it would cost quite a bit to fix. I do not own an external flash. Would one still work? If it were you, would you opt to just buy an FL-36 or maybe a Vivitar DF383 and use that and not bother to repair the pop-up flash? The shutter will not release when it wants to use the pop-up flash, but outdoors, it works great and in manual modes with the flash disabled it also works fine.
