    Not sure if this was mentioned before but I discovered it by accident cause I don't read instruction booklets :no:

    The G10 (probably other models as well) can't shoot a faster shutter speed than 1/500 when using the strobe because that's its max sync capability with the strobe.

    I shoot in the M mode and was using 1/1000 shutter speed. Little did I know the camera was automatically defaulting to 1/500 when the strobe is on. I discovered it when checking my EXIF data and it showed 1/500. Guess if I read the camera booklet I would have seen it sooner :D

    Guess you're not the only one that doesn't read manuals.... :D

    BTW... I was playing with my G10 these past few days and can't get the lcd to show anything but info when I go into M mode. The screen turns on briefly as I depress the shutter button to take a picture but no picture gets recorded. Have tried playing with all the buttons on the back but no luck. Any suggestions?

    It may take some simple electronics, but it is possible.

    Simple Bill! Just buy a housing that has a hot shoe sync and away you go!
