Re: Built-in flash pops-up even if external flash is attached

Maybe there is an issue with flash contacts. I don't use scene modes, so the flash does not pop up. But I sometimes have such a communication issue, which also manifests in wrong exposure values on the flash display and in the camera's white AF assist light turning up instead of the red one of the flash. In such case I turn both off, reseat and lock the flash, and turn both on again. Some say this may be due to bent flash shoe metal.
