Re: *istD pop-up flash problem
Not sure if you try fresh Alkaline battery. Try it if you havn't already.
Fully charged batteries, how do you know it fully charged? The "charger said so"?
Your batteries or charger might give you a fault peak reading. Try fresh battery or AC adepter and go from there.

Try pushing the flash forward just a tiny bit. this model of Nikon has a built in problem with the flash popping up too hard. You can also try to "soften" the pop-up action with your finger instead of just letting it snap up into position.
If flash pops up and doesn't fire, little white pin/lever inside flash has lodged up inside flash casing and needs to be eased from where it is stuck. Careful when opening the flash up to dislodge the white plastic pin/lever, there are tiny wires you REALLY don't want to damage....
Not really a solution, and about 3 years late :) my EOS400D also developed the same problem (however it was also coincidence that I had just updated to Firmware 1.1.1 (from 1.0.4), but basically the flash would pop up, but wouldn't fire (so not the standard problem with the microswitches), I found with a bit of forum searching that if you hold the flash down to almost clicking it in and then shoot it does actually fire. I am going to see how much it costs to get this fixed and will post what the actual fault is if I can understand the repairman.
Resolution on the LCD is rather "rough," but I think all these tiny screens are that way. Considering the "roughness" of the photos in playback, and their sharpness when viewed full on on a computer, the text is about up to as good as this screen can produce.
Or, in other words, I'm see'in what your see'in as for text. I think it's just normal.
Yes. The *istD shutter can only provide X-sync for electronic flash up to 1/150 sec. The *istDS reaches 1/180 sec. "High speed" electronic flash is done by strobing the flash repeatedly during the period that the shutter slit is traveling across the focal plane, at th expense of cutting power output quite a bit.
I've found that the *istD underexposes ( as it should metering 18% grey ) light subjects, or with light backgrounds. A white wall using TTL ( AF500ftz ) behind any subject it always turns grey! You need to manually adjust 1 stop over. With dark subjects, overexposing with out blowing out much. If your used to the metering from a PS digi cam the *istD takes a bit of getting used to.
A new flash mechanism that slides forward as it pops up assures an adequate angle of illumination while contributing to the camera's low-profile body design. The flash offers broad, even coverage with minimal illumination drop-off at the periphery. In addition, the new design allows a dedicated external flash to be used in tandem with the built-in flash.
