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.

Poinsettia...Olympus 14-42mm and Olympus FL36 Flash

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

Worth checking this out if you haven't already done so.

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.
