    Default T-10 ring flash with digital

    Has anyone tried to use the OM T10 ring flash with the E-3? Are there any adapter component to fit on the hot shoe of the E-3 for the T power control unit?

    Hi -

    From what I understand, this is not a good idea: the voltages involved with the older model flashes can be quite dangerous to digital camera's electronics.

    It might be true for some really old flashes (like the vivitar HV "yellow head"). I've been using the T-20 with no trouble

    The T10 comes with an adapter to mount on 49mm or 55mm Zuiko lenses which is a limiting factor. Don't know how big you can go with adapters. The power control should not be a problem but you are limited to manual flash. No ttl.
