I have and it does.

This is very good news. Thanks for testing.


I've only tried it in manual mode to see if it worked, it did. It may work in auto but I haven't confirmed that yet, I'd be surprised if it did. It's works on a Panasonic as they share a similar setup to Olympus going back to 4/3's standards.

Non-TTL Auto mode works with all cameras. I even used my FL36 this way with an old early-1970's mechanical rangefinder (also a Ricoh), and all exposures were spot on.

In this mode exposure is controlled by the flash itself, based on input from the sensor on the front of the flash unit. All you need to do is switch the camera to M mode, select aperture value and ISO that make sense and make sure the flash is configured to use the same values. With the X10, good settings to start with (indoors) would be 1/60", f/4.0 and ISO 200.
