Not sure how the E-PL3 slave function works, but S1 works off the pre-flash from the camera. I think S2 is manual and is signaled from any flash going off. You probably would use S1 on the Di466 and set the camera to controller/pre-flash and slave the channel to TTL.

I just shot the White M/43 Di466 again with my D90 in a number of different lighting situations and distances. I set the D90 built in flash to controller, pre-flash only and the slave signal on the camera to TTL. The Di466 was set to S1. I sure seems like the Nikon TTL signal is being received by the M4/3 Nissin. Hand held with or without a Gary Fong Light-sphere or on a tripod it gets the exposure correct. Anyone know what's going here?
