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

As a dealer I'm sure you are aware that there are dozens of maufacturers that are currently producing professional lighting equipment that all follow the same simple standard. These products are from companies like Photogenic, Broncolor, Visatec, Bowens etc.

I'm interested in hearing your opinion on why Canon would design the G1 so that it works perfectly well with these lights in both Av and Tv mode, but in manual mode it triggers the flash but the aperture doesn't work properly. Is it a matter of 'backard compatibility' when we are talking about a current standard and when it works in both Av and Tv mode? Is it possible that this is a design flaw?
