Color me confused. I am trying to do some off-camera strobe work (à la David Hobby website) with my OM-D and I find I can not get anything to fire on my om-d except the little removable flash that came with the camera. I even have a nice Olympus flash (the manual FL-40) and it wont fire. I have pocket wizards, cactus V radio poppers, etc etc. Nothing but nothing will fire on this camera except the little guy. Could it be my camera or is there (yet again) some really arcane setting to be set (besides putting the flash on manual via the menu which I did)?? A google search and a search of this site brought nothing to light. Any One??

should work fine, have you set flash to forced flash? If not it wont send signal to hot shoe.....
