It seems that my Achiever also cant sync well with my Olympus C750. I believe it was triggered off by the pre flash..haven really go fiddle around with it. Using it on the hotshoe works quite fine though. :)

Check this site out:

at iso 100;

normal (35mm) Guide no = 84 ft
S (50 mm) Guide no = 100ft
T (84 mm) guide no =110 ft

N + diffuser guide no = 56 ft

It has Zoom ( 35, 50 & 84 mm) & bounce.The flash has two automatic operation and manual setting.

it will not function as a slave flash.

It has a switch to select camera make so that it can be "dedicated" for Olympus, minolta, canon,ricoh, nikon, pentax, and also non-didicated mode.
