Hi,

I just bought a G6 and am wondering if it is fully compatible with my old 380EX Speedlite. Whether E-TTL is supported and low-light illumination from the flashgun would function. The G6 manual does not mention the 380 but does the 220, 420, 550 and 580. That the 380 is an EX and supports TTL suggests that it may work with the G6, but then again, if it could Canon would not have omitted mentioning it in the manual. The various Canon websites offer no help with regard to this query. Anybody out there can help me? The 580 is, imho, overpriced in the factual matrix of a G6.

Thanks.
