I have an F100 and an SB28 flash unit. I have noticed that sometimes when I put the flash on the camera and turn them both on, when I depress the shutter to half, focusing, I get a quick burst of flash out of the SB28. Is this some kind of pre-flash or do I have some option turned on that I am not aware of. I like the flash, but it is more complicated than the camera itself. Thanks
Yu may have the flash in automatic balanced fill-flash with TTL multi-sensor. (In the flash there is another icon indicator on, at the side of the one showing TTL). If you want it off, just press the mode selector until it disappears, for standard TTL.

You are correct Anthony: The flash has to be clean and turned on after the camera is turned on. Have a great time JRP (Nikonian at the north-eastern Mexican desert) My profile, My Gallery Previous photographic journey, before Nikonians: A Brief Love Story
I have experienced the same problem with an SC-17 thrown into the mix. I never had this happen when the unit was mounted on my N90s or N-80. It happened today consistantly during a shoot causing me to underexpose several shots. Can't remember it happening mounted to the F100, but have used the SC-17 almost exclusively with the F100. I shot a wedding with this rig and it happened only a few times. Today, I was wondering if there might be a short in the cord...
I will try Anthony's suggestion and see if that takes care of the unwanted flashing. Didn't have to worry about which one to turn on first with my old 283 and FE's!
