I asked this a couple of months ago, but didn't get much response. I have the SEMA 1 mic attachment which can be used to add an external mic (which would have to be on an adapter off to the side, I guess), but that leaves out the ability for a flash, such as the 600R, right? Too bad.

Any workarounds?

I want to use the OM-D for video and stills at the same time. It's easy with a GH2, but I prefer the stills of the OM-D.

You should be able to use both by firing the flash remotely. I have both (FL50R + SEMA 1) so will test this tonight to be sure.

And what is going to trigger the remote flash?
