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

I've been using a G1 with a couple of third party flash guns since January. I never experienced any problems. The flashes and camera work just as expected. They are slaved optically with some generic noname slave units. The slaves are triggered by a 550EX plugged into the hot shoe. Amazingly, the slaves do not react to the preflash.

I just tried to plug one of those flashes directly into the camera's hot shoe to see if can reproduce your problem. Nope, it still works fine, syncing up to 1/500 and I can control flash exposure with the aperture. (I tried shutter speeds 1/125, 1/250, 1/500; f-stops 2.8, 4.0, 5.6, 8.0). So, i don't really understand what you problem is, I can only guess your G1 is somehow different from mine...
