Hi All, I'm new on this forum, as a new owner of a G7, former (well, still..) IXUS 40 user, and Nikon FE2 25 years ago....
Does anyone know how (if possible) to synchronize an external flash, in my case an old OSRAM SC18 SERVO, which is triggered by the built-in flash.
The flash gets off, but not at the right time, probably too early as the G7 flashes twice.
Thanks, greetings from Switzerland. Dex

In order to use my Pro1 with an old Anton Bauer E 200 autoblitz, I must switch to Manual mode, 1/60 sec, otherwise, the slave flash triggers with the pre-flash for E-TTL measurement instead of triggering with the main flash.
