    Suit yourself. Yeah, for all you know, I might have screwed up and mounted one camera upside down on the tripod. Then maybe gravity messed it up. LOL

    Says it did in the FM2n, which is actually quite well known.

    It was only YOU that extended it to all Nikon.

    I too have the similar problem but with Nikon d5500. That is, while taking photos on automode, and with flash on the photos have dark band on the upper third of every photos. I would like to mention only when the flash is turned on and the problem persists irrespective of whichever mode I use auto mode or program mode with flash on. With no flash everything is fine. The shutter speed is 1/60-1/200 usually in automode when i have observed the band, never outside that range.

    I cannot explain that. If the shutter speed is not faster than 1/200 second, then that should never happen. The camera will not even allow the shutter speed to go faster with a hot shoe flash it recognizes (can communicate with). So you say that part seems to be working, but somehow the sync timing is incorrect. Seems impossible, at least I've never seen it, and I cannot imagine any option that could cause it. I would be convinced that it is a defective malfunction, and you should contact Nikon about repair before warranty expires.

    FWIW, what is the flash mode set on the flash?
