    On a couple of occasions I have jumped in the water to find that the little accessory flash in the hotshoe of my EM-1 Mkii has shifted so it no longer has had contact so stops working, happened yesterday most recently - I tested it after I assembled the housing but by the time I got to the dive site it has lost contact so apart from remembering to test just before I get in the water has any encountered this and come up with a solution?

    Playing around with them - i have two one of them I found I could twist one in the mount a little and it would lose contact the other also twists but does not seem to lose contact? Wondering if anyone has come across this before? For starters I'll mark the better one of the two.

    That's interesting as many of us have had the accessory flash units fail. That's why you should carry a spare.
