Hello:

I own the E-1 camera and the FL-40 flash. I wish to "try out the combo". What settings would I select to start with, setting up the flash? (I would set camera for now to "P" mode (but of course) alter this later as I test and try settings out.)

I simply would like to test out the flash, using the various "selection button switch" and wanted to ask, what (if any of the selections), would work (or not work), also which does what with its choice chosen?

I didn't get the FL-40 manual and I am not sure if the manual explains much? I would think it should offer some insight.

Thanks for everyone's time and comments....
God Bless,
Ed

You can download the FL-40 manual here:

http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/...wnload/manual/

Note that the FL-40 isn't compatible with later E-system cameras (E-300 and newer, why Oly came out with the FL-36 that has more features like FP-TTL mode). On the E-1 it works except for the FP (focal plane) high-speed synchronization...you are limited to 1/180 or slower on the E-1.

This is a good site to learn E-system stuff on:

Thanks Mike for the reply.... I'll try to test out some "experimental" shots this weekend...

I'll read more about it and then (as is a great necessary means to learn), do some actual "hands-on" photo taking tests.

Appreciate your help....

God Bless,

Ed
