Re: What flash synch chord/flash cable works on a G3?

Since the cable is only an extension of the contacts (no electronics involved), any cable with contacts at the same place as Panasonic-contacts will do. Naturally all Panasonic-cables will do, and Olympus-cables as well, because the flashes are interchangeable. Canon-cables have the contacts at the right spot (but 1 contact more, which is simply not used on Panasonic or Olympus-cameras and flashes) and will work without problems.

We (a family of 5) use a cheap chinese clone of a canon-TTL-cable on G3, E-PM2 and XZ-1, together with FL-600R, FL-300R and Nissin Di466 in every possible combination, very reliable operation!
