    Yes. It works with any camera with a built-in flash because the ring flash is triggered by the the flash from the camera. It comes with a clip-on flash filter to block the light output from the pop-up flash from impacting the exposure.

    I understood that the G3 sent out a pre-flash, is this correct?

    If this is so, would this not muck things up, TTL wise or would I have to use manual.

    The ring flash has a switch to allow you to select whether the slave sensor ignores the preflash or not.
