question

Which remote functions work or don't work with Olympus E-M1? I read a forum post that says It's not completely compatible with the EM-1. What it doesn't do is RC mode. Does it work as RC slave? Can it do remote TTL?
Asked by: Gary S.
The Panasonic flash has not been specifically tested with the Olympus OM-D E-M1.It should be compatible and work with the Olympus system in TTL.But best is to get one of the Olympus or Metz flashes.
