Re: Flash, E-P3, wireless, confused!

It's not a completely ludicrous suggestion.  He probably can't give you an absolute Yes in that configuration because it is on the edge of what the flash will be able to detect and the pop-up will send out.  That being said, in a fit of boredom I have held a flash behind the camera, sometimes a full arm length diagonally behind the camera, and it still went off.  But it can miss, and that's the point.  In such a setup performance is not 100% guaranteed.  If you are looking for consistency, get a physical cable connector for $50 too.

That way you aren't relying on chance, because that method can't be guaranteed to be consistent.
