I am personally sick and tired of dealing with the G1 being out of
focus; of the G1 refusing to cooperate with standard gear or even
Canon's own gear; and of Canon's almost Microsoft-like attitude
against its customers (akin to the attitude of cigarette makers,
who view their customers as property). I've worked quite a lot with
the camera. I am a professional shooter and cinematographer and I
know what I'm doing. I've used Canon gear since the mechanical F-1.
I made web sites and solicited help, spoke to Canon techs on
numerous occasions all over America, and really believed that it
was just a matter of me learning to use the camera adroitly that
would make it as capable as, say, and Argus C-3. But it's not. The
G1 is so full of bugs and dead-ended broken features that my
patience with it is really at an end.

Hi Kevin,

I've appreciated your input on the G1. Your faq pages are helpful without being sycophantic.

I see from your E-TTL page you seem badly disappointed in the G1's support of Canon's external flashes, especially the ST-E2/550EX combination. Was this the final straw for you?

I hope you let us know what you go to next.
