d200 pop up flash

  1. i had to send the d200 in 6 months ago because the pop up flash wouldn't fire. now its not working again. if i take a
    bunch of shots real fast the flash will start working. once i close it, it won't work again. no flash symbol in the corner
    either. it went back to nikon, they can't fix it right the first time???? anyone else have that issue with any nikon????
    twice with the same camera and the same issue, someone must be have the same problem.
  2. I only use my SB-800 on my D200s because the dang camera under exposes everything with the built in flash. It's so unpredictable. I think it just isn't aware if the flash is fully charged enough to fire for the distance indicated.
  3. Hmm. Never had a problem with mine. I use it mostly at a controller for off-camera SB-800 and SB-600 strobes, but once in a while I use it for a little fill, too. But... no, never had a problem.
  4. I never had a problem with mine either. Of course my SB-800 works infinitely better either on camera or as a
    remote. I have also used the pop-up as a fill flash with the 800 remote. Mine works well enough that I get lazy
    and leave the 800 in the bag it I'm just shooting a couple quick shots. As far a not working altogether, You D200
    must have a problem. As far a "always underexposing" I think one has to be aware of the internal flash's range
    limitations. If you're trying to get quality results 15-20+ feet away. It ain't happenin'.
  5. I just sold my D200 (upgraded to the D300). But when I had it I didn't have this kind of problem with the pop up flash. Do you
    know how to adjust the flash exposure comp?
  6. its toast, i tried everything the first time around. had to to send it in.the problem is intermitte at best. the big flash is nice, i have the 600, but i don't want that thing on all the time, the camera and lense are heavy enough.no remote firing with mine until i get the pop up fixed. i did try that and it works good. you need acouple 800's or 600's to really get it right.the pop up and the 1 flash don't really cut it.
