Olympus accessory port pinout

29 December 2017 - 12:04 PM

Hi Guys, I'm looking to find the Olympus PEN \ OMD accessory port pinout.


My goal is to take the Olympus Macro Arm Light (MAL-1) 


And connect it to the trigger of the camera, so it will act like a flash trigger.


I was thinking about connecting led to the FL-LM2, but I think this solution will be more robust and elegant.


So I started to pinout the Flash connector and the FL-LM1 Has 33 pins, Most of them are not connected, I'm attaching what I got so far.

The large octagon is GND and the square is VCC,  so I have 4 more pins that one of them is probably the trigger, and another one should be the ready state (once the flash is ready for firing).


The pitch of the connector is very small and makes it hard to pinout, so I'm trying to trace the IGBT pin4 to the connector, but this is 4 layers PCB which is not that easy.


so, I'm still trying but is someone knows the pinout, it would be great!
