I've had a G1 for a couple of months, and I'm generally ecstatic with it, particularly the fact that I can now tote around a small, light kit, and the weight is barely noticeable. Coming from Nikon 35mm cameras & system, I guess I was spoiled by the terrific auto-balanced fill flash in daylight; I would often rely on this on images of people in sunlight. It worked like an absolute charm. But the G1 with onboard flash doesn't seem to have any of that (particular) intelligence. I'm probably missing something in how it's best used. With the old Nikon's, you only had to pop up the flash and shoot, no special settings required. Now it seems I have to go into the menus and manually turn down flash strength in stops, and the right subject exposure is trial and error. Crap! Your comments? Am I overlooking something?
