D800 long shutter lag when using external flash
« on: August 31, 2012, 11:53:19 AM »

Hi friends,
I need help.

I experienced a time lag for more than 2 seconds,
beetwen pressing and the actual shutter release, whenever I put external flash (SB 800) or a Pocket Wizard transmitter on camera's hot shoe.

Does anybody have experience this?
Have I not set it properly?
