According to the manual I am able to use the zoom function automatically with the D70s, but I can not figure out how to get it to work. It says without the small M above where it says ZOOM, the zoom head position will be automatically adjusted. If a small M appears, press the buttons which look like trees several times until this disappears. I have tried this and nothing happens!
Can anyone help me to understand how I can get my flash to zoom automatically?

I had a similar problem with my 430 EXII flash recently and discovered that after using the flash head in a "bounce" orientation, where the zoom automatically sets itself to 50mm, It wouldn't go back to wide angle or telephoto when I folded it back into place. The problem was caused by a small piece of confetti preventing the head from fully resting in the forward position. Check to see if there is any debris caught in there.
Three things come to mind.
First, make sure that you are in fully automatic mode - easily done by reset (holding down "Mode" and "On/Off" at the same time. If you hit the "zoom" button it takes it out of automatic zoom and cycles through manual zoom settings until you get to auto again.
Second - make sure the camera is in an auto mode - manual mode could stop it from zooming.
Third - make sure that you don't have the diffuser pulled down. That can keep it from zooming also.
I struggled with this one but then, on the basis that if all else fails read the manual I found the answer. It's soooo simple. The wide-flash adapter is set. That's the little pull-out screen at the top of the flash which folds down over the flash-head. If it's pulled forward it activates the wide angle setting automatically. Push it back in and you'll be fine. tony k
