Using flash with E-M1
I am doing some final research before upgrading from my E-5. Now I don't do a great deal of flash work, but when I do I use an FL36r and an FL50r off camera often bounced and reflected. The system is very good and it works well.
I have a friend on Flickr and about her only critiscm of the camera concerned flash:
- The external mini-flash is annoying to carry around and you need to take couple of small protection plastics away to be able to connect it to the camera, so I prefer much more the integrated flash of E-5. Also the external isn't positioned that well so I had lots of problems when triggering FL-50R strobes with it. Maybe you actually need FL-600R to handle the flash control well enough. I read that it should be able to command other flashes when attached to E-M1...
Can anyone else comment on this? Is there a problem with the old flashes? If I have to buy new camera and lenses AND flashes then it going to be really expensive.
