help! is the canon 420ex supposed to be so noisy?
 
I just bought the canon 420ex to use with my canon g3. I'm a total amateur so I just set everything to auto. I dont know why sometimes the flash flashes and sometimes it doesnt. It is pretty noisy, kind of like a charging up noise...is it defective? thanks

The noise is normal.

When you set your camera to auto, the camera makes ALL of the decision...and they're not always right.
