Sunpak RD2000 Not Syncing with my D300 Shutter
8 months ago

I wanted a small flash that I could carry in my pocket. I heard good things about the little Sunpak RD2000, so I thought I would give it a shot.  I mounted it on by D300, and it fires, but the image comes out black.  I shot toward my TV, and that image shows up, so I know the shutter is firing.  It seems like it is firing a bit too soon.  I mounted it on my P7000, and it works fantastic.  I'm fairly new to the D300, and can't seem to find anything in the manual that would suggest how to fix this.  A Google search revealed nothing helpful either.  Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Todd
