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

Thank you very much, Peter. I wasn't even aware that Tv and Av mode works -- I read this in disbelief, but took a quick 2-minute test and to my surprise, it did work!

Having been much haunted by this malfunction I've lost much confidence in the G1 so it's going to take a bit more testing before the G1 gains my confidence back even in Tv or Av. If it does in fact works reliably then at least I have somewhat of an out.

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?
