#3 speedlite DEAD
This weekend I had my 580EXII on my TT5 flex/Kacey BD.
It was working well considering the harsh sunlight. So little abuse then suddenly the flash seems to have lost sync with the camere (tested on 3 bodies). I did everything you could imagine to troubleshoot. The current flash has been repaired (completely gutted with new components).
Back to my favourite camera store so they can ship it out for me. They laughed and said they were NOT suprised. I was told this is not uncommon. Bad luck is also not a factor either. Jokingly they said I should go to the darkside and enjoy a more robust Nikon flash. The "shop" even tried a quick trouble shooting of this flash and they said "yup its NFG"
Man this flash thing irritates me. Oh well.......
