Hi there, I was wondering if anyone can help me please. I am having problems with flash on my Nikon D40x.
I have an SB900 flash and suddenly on auto and TTL mode my images started coming out really dark. I tested with the on camera flash and it was also dim, barely making a difference at all so it must be to do with the camera. I have checked all my camera settings over and over again and they are all the same as I always use in that situation (I do nightclub photography). I have a high ISO, slow shutter speed and maximum aperture, the same settings I always use in the nightclub with flash on TTL mode.

If I put the SB900 on manual mode I can get the flash just about bright enough but as I have to move quickly around pubs and nightclubs photographing groups of people I don't have time to keep changing my settings on the flash as well as the camera. I can't find any info on the internet about someone having the same problem.
Any help would be hugely appreciated!
