Preventing popup flash from popping up
Nov 13, 2012

Ok, I realize this is a rather petty question, but is there a way to keep the builtin flash on my D800 from popping up?  It seems every time I pull my camera out of the bag in a hurry the builtin flash finds its way out and I'm afraid I'm going to break it off eventually if it gets caught on something.

I really wish Nikon didnt include this feature on their semi pro or enthusiast cameras.  I dont use it because I much prefer the SU-800 as a commander.  The D800 is so solidly built and robust except for the flash which is built like it is just begging to be broken off.  I'm sure there must be others who feel the same way I do about this.  I was thinking of just some black electrical tape to keep it secured.  Anyone else have an even better solution?

The D800 is such an awesome camera but if there is one thing that makes me wish I had a D4 instead this is it.  No built in flash!
