Hello Everyone. I just recently purchased a used Nikon D700 from eBay. I received it the other day, very excited to try it out. Took my son and wife to the park and the camera worked great. The next day, I photographed an event in Philly with the D700, Sigma 70-200mm f2.8, and 2 SB800s. I was going well for a while, then the viewfinder started blinking on and off. The flash LCD was turning on and off. When I took the flash off the hot shoe, it went back to normal. I turned everything off. Reconnected everything, turned it on, and it worked well, until it started all over again.

My questions are: are the D700 and SB800 compatible? Do I need to update the firmware? If so, how is that done.

Any insight or help appreciated.

Thanks.

Luis
