View Full Version : SB-800 jumping in and out of auto mode?

21st December 2014, 01:24 PM
Hi, until I find another flash I'm using a Nikon SB800 in manual on my EM5.

In the hotshoe the flash will bring up the auto menu (ISO, aperature etc) and it works nicely. However pressing the buttons can knock it out of position and that menu disappears bringing up full manual.

It's clearly pin positioning as if held down at an angle it returns, the other way vanishes.

Can anyone give an explanation? Do I need to tape off a pin to avoid this? It's not ideal!
