    How does the S80 control the total flash output when an external HF-DC1
    flash is used?

    The reason I'm asking is because I want to know if other external flashes
    can be used with S80. I already have canon's 580ex. I also have generic
    handle mount flashes (from the old days).

    It is too bad canon doesn't make a version of S80 with hotshoe. The G7 is
    not useful to me because it is missing the most useful feature of the S80 --
    28mm eq. wide angle. Having to add a lens adapter doesn't count (it may ruin
    the telephoto end of the zoom, and adds lens distortion..)

    What did you say? An S80 with a hotshoe? Are you joking? No way. Such a
    camera could affect the sales of the Canon D-SLRs. Next thing you are
    going to ask is RAW support! Hahaha! Some people...
