Question about Digital Cameras
If your using the hot shoe with an external flash, three things could've happened: battery power in your camera is too low to fire the flash; or check the menu/settings/flash - ext flash settings may not have been chosen by the camera, but you may need to set it first manually; or your hot shoe is not a hot one, but your flash needs to be plugged into a PC outlet on the side of your camera. One last thing - test fire your flash and make sure it works to rule out the camera. There have been occasions where the ready light works on the flash, but it won't fire even after being plugged in. This problem was found to be a loose soldered wire in the flash foot. Another time it wound up to be the flashtube. Hope this helps.
