So I had a photo shoot today and my SB800 started giving me trouble. It no longer wants to pivot left or right. It's completely stuck in the forward facing position. I can move the flash head up and down just fine. Everything else works great. Never had trouble before.
Don't want to crack it open, but I use the CLS wireless flash a lot and I sometimes need to have the light sensor facing me and the flash head facing the subject. Does that make any sense? If you've used an SB-800 you know what I mean right?
Just curious if anyone else has had this problem. I spent a few seconds during the shoot trying to get it to move but gave up. I gave it to an assistant and he kept trying too. After the shoot I sat down and closely examined it but nothing. It's really stuck.
And yes I was pushing the lock release "Push" button.
