SOURCE: Olympus e510 hot-shoe doesn't respond...

Have you tried cleaning the hot shoe contact? If the contact is dirty it may not communicate with the camera. The "contact" Its the metal "circle" in the middle of the hot shoe. Using a pencil eraser, rub the contact gently until you create eraser crumbs, then gently rub the "circle" with a soft cloth. See if this fixes it.

Check all battery contact points! Make sure contact points are clean and are not touching each other.
Wrongly inserted batteries can cause camera or flash to overheat and catch fire!

Do not dismantle or interfere with flash!

The flash unit can give off a lethal shock if tampered with!

SOURCE: I have a Godox EZa-C1... Will it control my Lumix FZ1000.

As it appears to be designed to be used with Canon equipment, probably not.

Where do I find the AC Charger adapter for a Godox PB820S Propac. I have look online and can not find the charger for this battery pack.


If you still have the 12V car adapter it ships with, you can buy a 12V supply with a cigarette lighter connector and use that .

You could try contacting their main distributor who lists the complete device :http://www.lightinthebox.com/godox-pb820-backup-external-battery-pack-for-speedlite-vsp-136265_p995394.html , but does not list the charger alone.

Failing the distributor, try contacting the factory. They offer direct contact for support (godox@godox.com),including skype chat (GODOX@hotmail.com for MSN/skype).

Adorama sells the "Flashpoint" series of devices which seem to be relabeled versions of Godox products, but only sell the 960 larger power pack not the 820.

I read that the 820 DIN cable connector is compatible with Quantum cables. That *might* mean that one of the Quantum chargers *might* work for you, as those use a DIN connector for some of the rechargeable Quantum batteries. I once adapted a wall adapter for charging a Quantum battery pack and used a DIN connector. Unfortunately the Quantum chargers are expensive and there are a number of different models,so it may be difficult to figure out what will work for yo.

When my OM-D 10 is in "P" mode the flash fires but the pictures are very, very dark, obviously underexposed. What's wrong?


"P" mode in most digital cameras is, "Program", meaning that it's really kind of manual. Attempting to shoot flash in this mode is likely to be difficult. Suggest "A", or "Automatic" mode.

Can not load


Same problem. I cannot load my PB820. I know it is not a problem of battery because I tested them. I know it is not a problem of charger (very easy to test, pin 2+ and 5- on the plug). So it is a problem with the electronic.
I am waiting for an answer of Godox.
I cannot find any electronic description of the electronic part - it would be very easy to change any part - but cannot do it blind...

How do you synchronize a non olympus flash unit to an olympus e 500


Install flash on hot shoe and use shutter speed on camera set to no faster than 1/125. Read the owners manul for flash AND camera. Be careful, some trigger voltages may be higher than what your cdamera can handle and may ruin internal flash usage, if not camera itself. better to use a Wein Safesynch hot shoe. This mounts ion hotshoe of camera and flash is attached to this.

Olympus E-500 flash smelling like burnt plastic


You should contact Olympus about this.

Olympus have had a recall on some older 35mm film cameras for problems with the flash circuit.

Please see -

Hope this helps,
