MISTAKE IN ARTICLE re: pop-up flash and wireless control
In reply to Cipher, 8 months ago

On section 4 of their review, they write:

"This flash cannot be used as a wireless 'master', though you can buy and attach an external flash that can serve that purpose."

On page 224 of the GX7 user manual, under the Setting the wireless it says:

"By using flashes that support the wireless control (DMW-FL360L: optional), you can control firing of the built-in flash (or a flash attached to the hot shoe of this unit) and three flash groups separately.

Preparations: Open the flash by sliding the flash open lever of this unit. Alternatively, attach a flash (DMW-FL360L: optional) to this unit."

In other words, YES, the built-in flash can, in fact, be used as a wireless master.
