Thanks!
I'm just using a Chinese SEAGULL SC-2 Flash Hotshoe / sync adapter.
I put a sticker on it to make it look....nicer. haha
BUT, here's the thing... I had to cover the bottom of the adapter with two pieces of clear tape because the cold shoe on the Pen F is metal and interferes with the flash signal. So if you cover up the metal on the bottom of the adapter to close the circuit you can use the adapter without any problems. This is the same for any camera with a metal cold shoe. I tried it on a few models.

UPDATE: The taped adapter was not reliable enough and every so often the flash wouldn't trigger. So I unscrewed the whole adapter and snipped the wires that attached to the metal rod at the bottom and also discovered that there was one wire connected to the rails that fastened to the shoe on the camera. I snipped that wire as well and covered the ends with a tiny piece of tape.

After screwing the adapter back together it's MUCH more stable now and I haven't had any sync problems.

Just got this from friend and RFf'er Johan. It's really strange and amusing to see 72 on the frame counter dial :-)

I've just finished running a film through the S, photos came I well but figured I probably wouldn't use the camera again so I told my wife I was going to put it on eBay. Her response?

"But it's a cute camera."

Guess I won't be selling it!

My next goal is ro repair the EES-2.

Is that a black FV or am I just being overly hopeful that such a thing exists?

a black Fv would be easy to just make by swapping out the plates (i know since i did exactly that for my own personal FT/FV hybrid). the black paint top plate will still read PEN FT though.
