Hi - new to forum and have a newly acquired D80 (lots of P&S exp along with old AE-1). I'm ready to pull my hair out with the built-in flash for my camera. I've read the owner's manual several times, several other books on the D80, etc., and can't seem to consistently get flash to work or not. When in Auto mode and the viewfinder showing a speed higher than my default setting (right now at 1/60), the flash opens and works. When in M, A, or S modes, I attempt to get the Fill Flash to work and even after opening the flash, it doesn't fire - even if subject is definitely dark with lots of backlight. When in P (program mode), it will sometimes work, sometimes not. I can understand the other settings as they may require some level for it to work, but the odd thing is that even in Auto mode indoors, the camera will prefer to put a very slow shutter speed (even slower than 1 sec) rather than simply turn on the flash. Is this normal with a d-slr? Is anyone aware of a good tutorial or education base for the D80 flash? Would a speedlight (like the SB-600) work any differently? Sorry for all the stupid q's. Regretfully I'm out of town not near my camera but I was working off memory for above. Thanks all!
