Can any one figure out what could have gone wrong in this situation? I was shooting with my newly acquired SB 28 on Nikon F70 with a 70-150mm non-AI lens. The Flash was set at TTL for non-AI, camera set at aperture priority and lens at f/8 on 100ASA film. The subject i was shooting was 8 feet away, which is well within the distance gauge shown in the flash's display screen. But, the result was: Complete underexposure. Isnt that in TTL mode the flash should shower sufficient light irrespective of set aperture? Im still unable to figure out what went wrong.

Who knows. In the future, do two things. First, watch the ready light. Make sure it comes on before taking the shot. If batteries are weak, it can take longer than you expected to recharge.
Second, immediately after releasing the shutter, check the confirmation light on the flash. If it blinks briefly, the flash was insufficient. Move closer or open up the aperture.
