Thanks for the reply Tedolf.

So are you saying that I can shoot the Nikon unit directly on the E-PL5 in manual mode? A bit unweildy, but I was unaware of this. Flash photography is still a bit new to me, but I like using my Nikon body in commander mode (Manual) with a slight bit of light from the pop-up flash.

Could this be done from the E-PL5 with a radio trigger that has a hot shoe on top. I thought I'd seen something like that.


I think this is what you are looking for. You get TTL when a M 4/3 flash is mounted on the transmitter (which is on the hot shoe) but only manual when it's on the receiver (off-camera). I guess that you can use two flashes simultaneously.

oops, forgot to add the link. There's a review here .
