"MYSTERY SOLVED :RE: Flash issue please help"

Tonight I accidentally reproduced the "preflash".

I had exposure delay on initially.
This separates the imperceptible preflash from the flash.
I must have had this on accidentally a few nights ago and thought it was a normal preflash.
When it disappeared I thought I had a malfunction when in reality everything was working properly.

I don't think exposure delay is indicated anywhere in the EXIF data.

Last lesson learned;

TURN OFF EXPOSURE DELAY BEFORE TURNING OFF CAMERA.

Thanks for all who responded to my non-issue.
