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

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

That sounds like a pretty sensible response to me. How would anyone expect a camera company to make its cameras compatible with the myriad of flash units available out there. They have a fine series of flash units they market and the camera works wonderfully with them. They have addressed one exposure problem with those flash units in a recent firmware up grade. Honestly, if a flash manufacturer wants to address the Canon market, it can come with a unit that is compatible with Canons. What response could the Canon company have had in this regard. Canon is an industry leader. Should they design their products to work with the followers or should it be the other way around. Backward compatibility has always slowed progress and always will.
