Digital rebel XS - flash delay

\015 I wrote in another thread....when i take a picture a picture in the AF mode, or any mode for that matter, the falsh will go off but the picture is very dark and fuzzy (even at the recommended distance). After i take the photo the flash will go off again (about 4-5 seconds later) I have re-charged mybattery and reset the camera to its orignal settings. The picture qualilty was really great...what happened?\015

Answers :

Your camera is set to syncronize the flash on the second shutter curtain. Check your custom functions/custom settings, and disable it. It's called "second curtain sync" or "2nd curtain sync". Nikon call it "Rear Sync".\015\012
