Re: A question for those that think only Canon flashes should work?

I realized that my post gives the impression that the G1 doesn't trigger a manual flash. That actually works fine. The problem is that in manual mode the aperature doesn't work properly.

If you look at your hotshoe you'll see one large contact and several smaller ones. The smaller ones vary in their number and location depending on the brand. But the large one is always in the same place. It is standardized. A hotshoe adapter only has the large contact. This is a standard that has been in place among all brands for decades.
