My Head Blocks my Pocket Wizard
Oct 5, 2009

People tell me I have a big head.

But this is ridiculous...

Today, every time I put my camera to my eye to shoot - misfire.

This is a camera/Flex/Plus II setup that I've used many many times. In fact, used it last night.

But today, I could not figure out why my flash wouldn't fire. I tried changing batteries, cables, receiving units, etc...no luck. Finally, we realized that as soon as the camera when up to my eye, the signal was lost. I could fire about a foot away from my head with no problems. Replaced the Flex transmitter with a Plus II and no problems.

I swear I don't have a lead plate in my head.

Any ideas? I find this very bizarre.
