Thank you Greg. Will make a mental note. Hah! A mental note at my age.

Just found out that I can not flash sync lower than 1/60th. It's the lowest setting available. I thought for sure 1/30th would be available.

That's weird. Next number (PL2) below 1/60th reverts back to 1/180.

Maybe I've got something set up wrong. I only have four or five choices.

I'll have to look at my E-PL2 this evening when I get home. I can't remember.

Just fired up my E-PL2.

The slow speed sync speed range is from 1/180 second all the way down to 30 seconds, in 39 steps!

That sounds about right. The EPL1 has 32 steps but since the EPL2 goes up to 1/180, it should have more steps. You must be missing something, James.

I'll have to get the manual out along with the camera and see what's going on. I'll be back.
