D700: Is my camera out of flash sync?
Nov 18, 2012

Hi experts

Im a happy D700 owner. But recently, I've been having some troubles though.

When ever I use my SB900 or my studiolights (with triggers), the flash fires, but the camera fire the flash / studiolights fire BEFORE the shutter opens. I can tell they fire before the shutter opens, because even if I shoot at 2 sec shutterspeed, the flash / lamps fire, but they dont appear on the photo (Im aiming the camera direct at the studio lights)

When I use a flash sync cable, the lamps appear on the picture. So the problem only occurs when I use the "flash shoe mount"

The triggers dont work, you say. But the work fine on my friends D700.We just had a test. Both cameras had the exact same settings.

So any of you have heard of this kind of problem before?

My first thought was that my shutter is "out of sync" maybe? My shuttercount is 52000.

Im just curious. I will bring my camera to the local Nikon repair shop as soon as possible

Best regards
