"Blinking in SB28 - is it normal?"


New York, US
          

I turned sb28 on and set the iso, apert, etc, but the distance indication keeps on blinking. I am assuming it doesn't affect the actual flash.

I kept on hitting "set" and it is still blinking. The only way to stop the blinking is by turning it on then setting the flash to vertical mode <180 degree> then set back to horizontal mode.

Is this normal? Any other normal way to stop the blinking? It looks annoying.

Thanks!

My SB-28 does not blink after I have chosen "Mode" and do all the selections with "sel". I don't have any "set" button.

Just checked the manual, it happens that the head is tilted -7 degree downward so it keeps on blinking. When I tilted it 180 degree and back it must had been set on horizontol mode instead of -7 degree. Now that's annoying. I hope the photos today didn't leave any nasty shadows beneath the people's chin...

Thanks to you I learned another thing today about the SB-28.
Yes, as soon as the flash head is straight ahead, no more blinking. Addressing your concern over shadows under the chin, you will hardly get any if the subjects were close.

I examined today's session and I remember that I got it fixed during the important indoor photos. as for outdoors I use flash as fill so they shouldn't be bad . We'll see how the photos look when they came back.

Sorry I found out rather late than soon. It is because I am used to use it always either horizontal -directly forward- or tilted up for bouncing. Seldom tilted down, only in macro work and even then, when not bouncing.
