When I mount Speedlight SB-900 on D600 the flash is somehow blocked/obstructed when fired in any mode.The resulting images are very very dark. Same picture is much brighter when shot without flash. The SB-900 does not fire at all in M mode. The built in flash functions normally in all modes. The SB-900 works fine on other nikon cameras but not my D600. I have checked and rechecked settings (increased/decreased ev) on both the flash and camera. Could this be a hot shoe issue? I am puzzled by all of this because the flash itself will fire.
