Have a new Speedlight 910 and am learning the ropes on it. I have a D600.
For whatever reason, when I shoot in APERTURE priority, I get these very, very long exposures.
For a typical shot indoors with good lighting with Speedlight and Nikon 50mm 1.8 LENS, (TTL setting), Spot metering, F 5.6, ISO 100, I get a exposure time of 4 seconds! Camera is set at 1/250 (Auto FP). When looking at the info on the shot, it says sync mode: flash lightning bolt and 'slow'.
Auto, Shutter priority and Auto all is normal. Love the camera!
What's up or what more info would I need to give you?

You have the camera set for SLOW sync.
Turn on your camera and with no external flash attached, bring up the internal flash.
Then press the lightning bolt symbol on the side of the camera just above the lens attaching white dot. Then turn the rear control dial to activate the flash mode symbols in the top LED screen. Turn the wheel until the lightning bolt flash symbol appears.
That should do it. Now you can attach your SB910 in normal fill flash mode.
