Nikon: Lost all camera control when attempting to use PW FlexTT5
Oct 12, 2013

I've tried to search for people with similar problems on google but to no avail.

I'm just trying out a FlexTT5 with my Nikon D700 to control my Einstein strobe, the manual triggering seems to work fine using the test button.  However, whenever I put the FlexTT5 on my D700 all my exposure control goes away.  When I press the shutter, my lens hunts, but won't actually exspose a shot either (going to manual focus won't allow the shutter to release either).

The exposure mode is Manual, and everything works fine before I put the TT5 on.  The little flash icon flashes though when I press the shutter.

Any ideas what could be going on
