FL50r Remote Flash


Is anyone using the FL50r successfully as a remote flash? Particularly outdoors.

I've come to Olympus (OM-D E-M5) from Nikon D300 & D700 with 2x SB900's & 1x SB800.

I've mastered the different menu system and feel that it's great and really easy to change settings.

However when I working outdoors I find I'm getting a significant number of miss fires where the flash fires 5 sec AFTER the shutter. Annoyingly the EXIF data shows the flash has fired! This presumably refers to the little "pop-up" flash on the hot shoe.

The system is proving un-reliable - particularly when compared to Nikon's CLS system.

Does anybody have any suggestions please?
