I want to be sure I understand the trick here. I have a vivitar brand m43-dedicated TTL flash that also has full manual control (but not self auto). Do I need the tape to overcome the flash speed limit, or do I just need to operate the flash in manual mode?

If you have a flash with self auto you set it for ISO 200 / F8, you set your camera in A mode at ISO 200 / F8 and it should work OK up to 1/320s exposure on E-PL1.

If you don't have self auto on your flash ( your case ), you put a tape and manually set its power.
