I have a Nikon D500 which I purchased back in June. Yesterday I purchased an SB500 flash. I turn both the camera and flash on, The flash is ready, The flash fires if I use the test firing button. But the flash ready indicator does not show in the camera viewfinder. When I take a picture the flash does not fire.
When the flash sleeps (all indicator lights turn off) and I touch the shutter on the camera, the flash wakes up. So the two units are talking to each other.
I am new to the D500, Am I missing something in the setup?
