Re: G1 and external flash?

When you read this article make sure to pay close attention to the topic "Wide Angle Mis-Timing". From my own testing I see the same problem is all zoom settings, not necessarily wide angle. Problem severity varies greatly between different G1's, so don't assume your G1 will behave exactly the same as someoneelse's

It was a very long post, I didn't read all.

But it'd seems that Canon said it should work with 3rd party flash
yet it didn't. Was that the final verdict?

I think it would help if you do a search on flash on this forum.
This topic has been talked about many times.

regarding the use of external flash:

Can I use any 3rd party external flash other than Canon's? I can
manually set the external flash, but other than that, would I have
any problem?

If I have some non-Canon external flash setup, the build-in flash
is turned off automatically, right? Or is this a setting I need to
change in the camera?

If I set flash off in the camera, would the external flash attached
be turned off, or does this just affect the internal flash only?

Thanks.
