Hello, I have the DPS 9000 which i bought to use with my Minolta S404 and it works perfectly, but my S404 flash died on me. I sent it back to Minolta to get an estimate on fixing it. Anyway I am looking at the Canon Powershot S1 IS which also uses CF cards and seems to be a great replacement for my Minolta S404. I was wondering if anyone knows if the DPS 9000 is compatible with this Canon S1 IS? I checked the chart at digipower but it doesn't include the newer Canons. I believe the DC jack on the Canon S1 IS is for 7.2 volts but if anyone has any info on if DPS 9000 will work with this new cannon please repond. Also if anyone had similar flash problems with the S404.



Thanks Bill

Call Digipower directly.

They have often tested newer digcams but not yet included them in their compatibility charts.

Thank you for your quick reply, I will call them once I get their number from their website. I notice you talk alot about the DPS-9000, I think it is quite awesome myself and wonder why it isnn't more popular or widely known. Any ideas or drawbacks that I dont know of?



Thanks again for the help I will let you know what I find out.

Yes, I really like the DPS 9000 forsix reasons:

1. It is cheaper than most proprietary batteries.

2. It is Lithium based so will work well in low temps.

3. It lasts a helluva long time on one charge.

4.It has LED so you know when it is getting low.

5. You can charge it in your car.

6. It will work with virtually all digcams so it is "portable" if you sell one dig cam and purchase another.
