Does anyone know if the dedicated Speedlite TLL flash as used on a Canon SLR (EOS 50) can be used with a Canon Powershot Pro 1 compact, in fully automatic mode?

I see no shotshoe for attaching the flash to the camera (by looking at Steve's review.) I don't see a port to attach the flash by a wire. Therefor the only way you could use it is to sync it with the flash (fire when it sees the other flash fire.)

In that mode, I don't know if TTL can be used for flash metering. Maybe? you might want to ask in the flash forum here, instead of in general.

Good, I must admit that I didn't read that far into the review, only at the specs. Thanks for finding that (and doing muskrat sam's research for him.)
