FL50R on EM-5 hotshoe not working?
Oct 27, 2012

Hi there,

today I tried for the first time a friend's FL50R on the EM-5 but, while it works flawlessly in RC mode, it just won't fire when placed on the hotshoe. Of course I tried every single thing, shutter speed < 180, RC off, M and all that.

After thinking that my EM-5 might have a problem, we tried the flash on my friend's EM-5 and it just did the same, nothing. The FL50R does work on the E5 hot shoe, but it doesn't on the EM-5.

Before sending the two OMDs in for warranty repair, can anyone confirm that the combo should work?

Or, of course, give me an explanation or a solution

The OMDs are running both firmware 1.5

Thanks all
