Here`s one example of using flash off camera with the x10, there`s a full description with the picture in the gallery.



I don`t think a fixed head flash unit would cause a lot of problems, even small units feel un balanced on the x10 so most people will quickly be looking at other ways to attach the flash off camera.

I prefer a lead to a wireless trigger, triggers tend to restrict you max working shutter speed.

This is what I use, there's plenty about that are a lot cheaper, I also use M4/3 so this lead covers both.

Since the x10 has a leaf shutter you can use any shutter speed you like using any none dedicated lead, even 1/4000 sec.

There`s an interesting blog here that discuses flash and the x10.
