canon G2/3 and flash - Photography

how is the balance and holdability (is that a word?) of the canon G cameras with a 4xxEX or 5xxEX flash attached? would a small sidemount flash bracket/handle be a good idea? is anyone using one they could recommend? i know a bracket would require an off camera cord, which i still have from the days before i went digital (seems so long ago ;-) when i had a 540EZ for my eos A2. thanks for any input. peter...

    The 420EX is a good match for the Gx series, the 540EX would be a little big
    and top heavy unless you really need the extra power. I use the 420 on my
    G1, I think it's well balanced.

    I have used both the G2 and now the G3 with a 420EX. It is not the best
    balance but it is certainly acceptable. I also use that flash with one of
    the Stroboframe brackets and the off camera cord. That works great but it
    is just not the compact package that just the camera is.

    A bit of advice. You can't use the 540EZ usless you just want a manual
    flash. They do make a 550EX which is very similiar and will work fine with
    the G series but IMHO it is way to big even with the bracket combination.

    Which ever way you decide to go, good luck and have fun!!
