No I wouldn't say there is anything wrong with your DSLR I would think that the flash sync speed is set incorrectly. Each camera model will have a specific shutter to flash synchronized speed. I've had and used SLR cameras with sync speeds as low as 1/30 and DSLR's at 1/250. With my studio camera under studio strobes with a shutter speed at 1/60th I do get a slight blink of light BUT, it's the flash duration that makes the exposure. There is also a difference between a flash made for a film camera and one that is made for a digital camera check make sure teat the flash is compatible with the camera you are using, also check see what the camera syn speed is and set your shutter speed to that. If your camera is equipped with an "M" mode then it also has a "P" mode for program this is a common mode to use flash because the camera sets everything for you all you need to do is compose, focus and trip the shutter. If the exposures are not coming out right then another thing may be a factor and that's the light metering mode (if you camera is equipped) look in your manual there could be as many as four different metering modes, check to see what the manual recommends for flash photography for your camera.
Another thing I use digital flash on my film cameras BUT not a film flash on a digital camera they just don't sync right.
You can choose your default power up mode in the settings menu. If it's already setup as F (film), then you're holding the power button too long when turning on the camera (if you hold the power button, it will turn on in the next mode after the default power up mode). Try just quickly pressing the power button - this will remedy that one if your default power up mode is already set to F (otherwise, go into settings menu and change it to F).
A couple of my friends' computers don't have the RAM/video card, or whatever is needed to playback HD footage smoothly. There's a ton of data transferring to playback the HD video/audio, and many computers (especially if they're not new, but even many new ones) aren't up to the task. Try playing it from the camera to your TV. Does it play smoothly? If so, it's the computer. This doesn't effect videos you upload to YouTube, etc, it is just frustrating and annoying that it doesn't play smooth and makes editing slower as well. Check out the support page on gopro's website - they have FAQ's, Troubleshooting, etc... tons of helpful info there. Also, most of us who have used gopro gear for a while now are usually happy to help when we see a question we know something about.
Most probably the switch under the Mode button went faulty. Try to operate the button many times, sometimes it helps, if the culprit is corrosion or small debris inside the switch. If not, have the meter repaired at Seconic.
This flash is a superb budget alternative to the Minolta alternatives but is only suitable for their film cameras. Sony's SLR's are based on the later Minolta Digital SLR's and they're all incompatible with this flash.
The technical differences between the film and digital Minolta cameras explains why a Minolta 5600HS (for example) had to be redesigned and redesignated as a 5600HS(D). The former will not work on Sony Alpha models, but the latter is fully compatible.
Hi There is a switch on the end of the camera if you move it to the little mountain logo the flash should work fine (obviously press the flash on button ). if the flash is too bright change the ev setting to -1 and give it a go . if it's still a little bright change the ev setting lower until you happy.
