Hi guys, I just bought a new YN565EX, everything works great except the one which matters most. I realised that when I use the nikon version of the flash on a D700, it makes my camera "lag". The AF could be on the subject already but the camera would not take the photo until a second has passed. This happens regardless whether I'm on I-TTL mode or Manual flash mode. I thought maybe the camera was having problems with AF, so I change to S mode AF and release priority, still the same. As last resort I even tried changing to full Manual AF mode and the problem is still there :dunno:

Any similar experience or idea how to solve it guys? It's quite frustrating lol :confused:

tried with manual focus mode how ?

how about doing this without the flash unit attached ? is there still an AF lag ?

and is focus locked or still hunting ?

:bsmilie: I realised its a damn stupid and obscure mode on the D700 that hindered me. I set it on Redeye Mode by accident.

Now everyone else should know what to do in case of something so silly happening.

btw just to answer the above comments: this crappy mode works regardless what you do.
AF-S and AF-C set to release priority = same "problem"
Full Manual focus on lens and body = same "problem"

Another one of the weird quirks of the D700 body I guess... together with the strange placement of the ISO button and the Menu embedded Auto-ISO function...

Thanks guys :D

oh btw the interesting thing was that there was no such problem on the fully manual YN560 original... but the problem was still there with YN565EX on manual. yups... Cheers! :D
