Hello Michael and all,

I have read this thread with interest, and have tried and experienced the exact problem using a Minolta 360PX TTL/Manual flash. It is definitely a Canon screw up!!

SO.....What do we do about it? We can all sit here and complain and hope Canon somehow reads this thread...OR...we can all send an e-mail to Canon at least to show that there are many of us that don't like this "annoyance"! I for one will e-mail Canon today...and if enough of us do it, maybe they will give a better response to the problem...of course this is "wishful thinking"...but I'm gonna try anyways!

Below is an inquiry I sent to Canon and their reply. Quite frankly
I’m very disappointed in Canon’s attitude. Isn’t
it consumer’s right to expect that their product is to work
properly with “industry-standard” accessories unless
otherwise stated? Please voice your opinion.

Your inquiry as follows: *****
Flash with non-Canon flash is over exposed as if aperture is full
open at 2.0, regardless what the actual aperture setting is.
Flashes used: Vititar 283, Sunpak 383. Can this problem corrected
by sending in, or is Cannon planning to issue a fix via firmware?
Canon response as follows: ******
Dear Michael

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
