Improvements of previous firmware update included in version 1.0.0.1

  • It is no longer necessary to reset the date at the end of the month.
  • Correction of an underexposure problem that occurred in low light conditions when an EX-series Speedlite (220EX / 380EX / 420EX / 550EX) was mounted on the camera but turned off.
  • Speedlites 160E and 200E will now flash when mounted on the PowerShot G1. But, as they are not EX-series Speedlites, they will fire at full strength. (Automatic flash exposure with thePowerShot G1 is only possible using the built-in flash or an EX-series Speedlite.)
