    Is there off camera wired/wirelss FP TTL Flash for DMC-GH1/G1/GF1

    X-sync speed is limited to 1/160.
    From what I have read, the Olympus and Panasonic flashes do allow FP TTL on the body but I have not been able to find any discussion about off camera FP TTL flash options.

    Anybody have suggestions? Especially wireless options...

    Try this discussion: http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/showthread.php?p=161944. Seems like some people tried a few things with some success. Personally I use a Vivitar 285 off-camera, so it's all manual mode which is fine. TTL would be nice, but a bit too rich for me.

    I use a Vivitar 383 dedicated TTL for Panasonic on my G1 & a TTL flash cord for off camera use from the link below.

    The Vivitar 383 works fine & not too expensive. Got mine from B&H.
