Re: Canon’s attitude: what do you think?

I believe Canon did advertise that the camera is only guaranteed to work with Canon EX flashes. At least that was my understanding before I bought my G1. It seems many digicam makers are doing the same thing so I don't even know if there is an "industry standard". Correct me if I'm wrong.

Below is an inquiry I sent to Canon and their reply. Quite frankly
I’m very disappointed in Canon’s attitude. Isn’t
it consumer’s right to expect that their product is to work
properly with “industry-standard” accessories unless
otherwise stated? Please voice your opinion.

Your inquiry as follows: *****
Flash with non-Canon flash is over exposed as if aperture is full
open at 2.0, regardless what the actual aperture setting is.
Flashes used: Vititar 283, Sunpak 383. Can this problem corrected
by sending in, or is Cannon planning to issue a fix via firmware?
Canon response as follows: ******
Dear Michael

Canon only designs,tests and manufactures accessories for our
products. It is therefore up to other manufacturers to meet our
standards and abilities.

Thank you for your inquiry
