Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-800 TTL Flash
When you attach the flas to the camera can exidentli fire. This is normal, and manufacturer recomendation, turn off the flas unit before attach or deattach, prevent this fireing. Fireing when you turn the flashead is not normal. Probably the mounting foot of the flash unit can move in the hotshoe, breaking connections between the connector pins, causing exidental fiering. Always lock the locking lever of the flas, wich can prevent this unwanted movement. Also chek the hotshoe on the camera, wich should to have a "leaf spring" keeping the flash unit steady.

I have this problem occasionally. I changed sync cords and it seemed to remedy it.
