Promaster FTD 7000m won't work in slave mode for Oly E-PL1
Nov 24, 2013

Hello,

I just picked up a Promaster FTD 7000m (manual here), and I was trying to get it to trigger off the flash of my E-PL1.  I switched to remote/slave mode (p. 7 of manual), and waited for the blinking light to indicate that the flash has charged.  Then, I fired the flash on my E-PL1, but the Promaster did not fire.  I thought that maybe the light reaching the sensor was not strong enough, but even when the sensor was facing the flash, the Promaster didn't fire.  Anybody have any ideas?

Thanks!

Joe
