Re: New FL-600R flash doesn't work with E-M5

Procedure should be, mount flash, turn flash on, turn camera on, fire away. Just ensure that the camera is not in RC mode (remote command).

If that doesn't work than it sounds like a defective flash to me.

As for rechargables, dunno about the 600, but AAA Eneloops work just fine in my FL300r. Not sure what kind of actual life I'll get out of them, but I have done at least 30 or so TTL metered shots with them still recycling fast (I think the rating is 95 full power shots with AAA Alkalines in the flash, which is really low...but at least AAA are small and light and I don't use flash often).
