- Geoge [ George? ] This answer is a bit late, 3 years, but, as the title states, it is DEDICATED for Canon AF SLRs: Single-Lens Reflex. That-is a, bigger camera, that can use interchangeable lenses, and focuses through the same lens that captures the image. SO, YOUR ANSWER IS 'NO'. The Powershot series MIGHT have a couple of their "Pro" models, but most-all have a separate "viewfinder" lens, that you look-through. Of course, now, with the popularity of phone-cameras, and "selfies" some models have dropped the viewfinder, and the shot is made by looking at the screen. I have been a Pro photographer for a long time, and suggest that if you can find an "Old-time" Vivitar, with ONLY ONE CONTACT POINT. You will have a great flash :Vivitar 183, 283, etc., and it can be used on ANY "hot-shoe" mount camera. Being "dedicated", and with the red [infra-red] sensor, we see 2 or 3 "extra" contacts, along-with the 'main', center-contact, so that specific camera-series will work AUTOMATICALLY, being "dedicated" to its AF, lenses, and electronics. I have owned Vivitar flashes, older models, going-back to the film days, and they have been GREAT - the Viv183 , and worked on Canon, Nikon, Pentax, and other cameras. Buy a flash that is as powerful as you can afford, and avoid "direct" flash - swivel the flash to BOUNCE off the ceiling, wall, floor, or reflector, to avoid the harsh, "hard" shadows and highlights.

- Hi "Ad" , almost all the flashes you see here, are "DEDICATED" to a specific Brand, sometimes specific models ONLY. That is for the "automatic" exposure (near or far, or flash "bounced" off ceiling). That is what TTL (Through-The-Lens) means. The camera measures the "incoming" light, and (theoretically) makes a good exposure. If you look at old film-cameras, the "hot-shoe" had only ONE metal contact, and older flashes also had only ONE metal "button" contact, to complete the circuit. If you look at the newer cameras, almost all have 3-or-4 contacts (look at "lying-down" pic for this flash). That is for the complicated electronics needed for "TTL", so you'll have to buy a flash "dedicated" to Olympus, or you may find a cheaper, "non-automatic", one-contact flash, that will work on any camera. Some of those have a sensor to "control themselves", or else you will have to calculate the proper exposure, (depending on distance), and set the aperture manually. Just spend some time taking shots of a person, at different distances, and find-out the best exposure for that distance (say, F/11 at 10 ft, F/8 at 15 ft., etc. ...) Always remember: digital photos are like the old slide-film, if you over-expose ("wash-out") to white, (e.g. someone's face) you have "lost" the info, and ruined the shot. NOTHING can retrieve an over-exposed digital shot (not Photoshop). Much better to under-expose a little, because then you can correct it by computer (make it lighter). I hope this helps, Good Luck... - Mark T., Lansing, Michigan, USA .by MarkTPhoto6/25/2014Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
