D700 and SB-900 issue
Jul 24, 2012

Hi

Last year I had an issue while photographing a wedding where my SB-900 started strobing and flashing on its own while mounted on my D700.
Started off occasionally then developed into almost constant firing.

Sent off to Nikon UK who denied there was an issue and replaced the hotshoe and charged me as it was out of warranty.

Last week, I had the same thing happen on another D700 body.

Surprise, surprise, Nikon deny knowledge of any issue with the D700 hotshoe and SB-900 flash.

Just how many are there of us who have experienced this and what a shame Nikon don't acknowledge the issue and replace the hotshots!

The replacement one has been fine for almost 6 months now so I assume they replacement ones are strong enough to cope with the weight of the SB-900?
