Nikon D200 Built in flash smell

Hi all,

I was mucking around with a home made soft box to fit over the in camera flash of the D200 and one exposure was accompanied by a much louder pop, then a strong electrical smell. Alarming to say the least. However the camera and flash (sans soft box) seem to be working fine.

ISO 400

Manual mode



My question is, has anyone experienced a similar occurrence with the D200 (any camera for that matter) and were there any consequences?
