    I have an older Sony DSC-D770 digital camera and I have a Sunpak DS-20 flash attached to the hotshoe.

    I have the external flash selected on the camera menu and the flash will fire for three-four shots (doesn't matter if the flash is set to AUTO or MANUAL), but once its 'ready' light illuminates, the flash will refuse to fire until I press the 'ready' light on the flash, which will consequently fire a test flash, forcing me to wait for the flash to recycle.

    this obviously gets very annoying since I end up missing several shots due to the flash not firing as expected.

    does anybody have any insight/advice on this issue?
