Why does the flash not open up or any indication of it working on my 50D? I push the flash button and the top does not jump open although it did in the past.

Never mind, I figured it out. I put a little gizmo on the hot shoe to keep crap out and
it kept the cover plate from operating. Never figured on that.

Just don't feed Gizmo after midnight, you'll end up with more problems then you thought possible. :)

Heh! Your Gizmo is misbehaving, or you can't get the pop-up flash to pop up:):)?
