Question about Sony HVL-F56AM TTL Flash
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.
