I have am having an intermitant problem with pictures taken using the built-in flash. The problem is that the top 1/8 to 1/2 of the image will be darker than the bottom portion on some photos, some but not all.

Nikon says:
1.Use a fully charged battery. - I always do.
2.Use a Nikon recommended SD card - It is not, but is a good quality Kingston card with fast transfer speed.
3.If all else fails reset the camera and if the problem persists it may be something with the lens.

Last night I took 40-50 flash pics just to see if there was any pattern to the problem. I had the dark image problem with the first few and everything was fine after that.

FYI, I am using the 18-55mm lens, automatic everything.

I'd appreciate any ideas/suggestions?
