Using an external flash (optional)
After attaching the external flash, the effective range will be increased when compared to 
the camera’s built in flash.
Preparations: Turn off the camera and close the built-in flash.
∫ Using the dedicated flash (DMW-FL220; optional)
Attach the dedicated flash to the hot shoe 
A 
and then turn on the camera and the dedicated 
flash.
Be sure to firmly secure to the dedicated flash with the lock 
ring 
B.
Select [FLASH] on the [REC] mode menu. (P30)
Press 
3/4 to select the mode and then press 
[MENU/SET].
While the external flash is connected, the following icons are 
displayed.
Press [MENU/SET] to close the menu.
You can also press the shutter button halfway to close the menu.
∫ When using other commercially available external flashes without 
communication functions with the camera (DMC-GH1)
It is necessary to set the exposure on the external flash. If you want to use the external flash in 
Auto Mode, use an external flash that allows you to set the aperture value and the ISO 
sensitivity to match the settings on the camera.
Set to Aperture-priority AE Mode or Manual Exposure Mode on the camera and then set the 
same aperture value and ISO sensitivity on the external flash. (The exposure cannot be 
compensated adequately due to the change on the aperture value in Shutter-priority AE Mode 
and the external flash cannot control the light adequately in Program AE Mode because the 
aperture value cannot be fixed.)
Note
You can set the aperture value, the shutter speed and the ISO sensitivity on the camera even 
when attaching the external flash.
Some commercial external flashes have synchro terminals with high-voltage or reversed 
polarity. Using such extra flashes may cause a malfunction or the camera may not operate 
normally.
If you use commercially available external flashes with communication functions other than the 
dedicated one, they may not operate normally or they may be damaged. Do not use them.
