Thanks, I know that the Prolinca is safe to use on the EM-5 as its was on the canons (with their limited safe voltage). I'm beginning to think it may be a flash synch speed problem, which hopefully I will resolve tonight

Hope you get the answer tonight Brian. Smile

On the subject of flash, does anyone know if there is a way of firing Canon flash units via the EM-5? I've got a Canon MR-14EX ring flash which would be nice to use with the macro lens.

Wireless triggers can be a bit funny, some camera`s they will like, others they may not, generally you should be fine up to 1/250th.

I'm back from a fun evening photographing Jelly Babies doing odd things, eating stilton cheese and grapes and the like.

In between times I had a play with the flash trigger (and my EyFi card to Asus Transformer direct link) and both worked perfectly!?

In fact I was able to make the flash trigger work at up to 1/250th sec (which it wouldn't do with my canons)

and the eyfi was transferring filles (JPG LSF) at a very handy rate without there being a Wifi connection)

All I can imagine is either that I hadn't got the trigget seated properly or that the flash-heads at the Owl Shoot were only set for the radio triggers

Most odd but very satsifcatory that it does now work - thanks for trying to help with this one

Denny, don't ask which lens - it has to be the one we haven't been able to get Sad

I've just check mine, and there are no cracks - got out the magnifying glass to make sure. I hope it doesn't develop a crack in future - I must say I feel a bit po'd reading about that. Hair in the soup.........

Its the 45 f1.8 Denny (paid for - not "Freebie" Tongue )

As I was working with it at f11 (to accomodate the lighting set-up needed by other "Lesser Cameras", you know the ones Wink ) I used a bit of post-processing to reduce the DOF around the "Baby"

Anne - sounds like the "Other lens" has still not reached you yet?

I've added this to the "cracked bezel" forum. It seems Olympus have admitted the fault.

Thanks Brian. I asked because I'm assuming folks reading this thread will want to know as many details as we can give them.Grin

I do have a crack in mine, and yes they are aware of it - will be sending mine in for repair after the weekend - I will feel lost without it..............back to carrying the 620 for a while.

If anyone is planning on using the camera for Christmas/New Year activities, best to be aware you may not get it back in time.

So you might want to hold off, if that's the case.
