TTL means though the lens. The camera tells the flash how much power to use base on the range of the subject.

All of the units we have suggested work in TTL with Olympus micro cameras. They are "dedicated" to the Olympus system.

That would indeed, be a problem....

Everything that's been explained to date has been with the E-PM1 you mentioned in opening this thread. have you been foolin' with us

the onboard Panasonic pop-up flash will not sync up wirelessly with TTL flash units, so you're either stuck with the flash on the camera or, you have to buy a flash with the ability to be slaved, non-TTL, with the flash on your camera, which is far from automatic and require more lines of text explaining the process than I want to type right now.
