Philippe, In addition to triggering the shutter, you can adjust the White Balance, aperture, shutter and exposure and a few other things that I haven't had a chance to play with. Great for portraits, especially self portraits.
What settings were you using? I tried several setups to try to reproduce your issue, but was not successful.

Thanks for your suggestions and the technical assistance on the link. Indeed, the picture was taken through our patio door. (My wife had assisted in site preparation by cleaning it thoroughly the day before) On cardinals, we had not seen many in the past, but a friend suggested last...
I captured this image last Saturday and was very excited to have finally gotten a "Cardinal Shot". It was taken through a patio door at a range of 10-12 feet with a Sigma 50-500 at f/11, 1/80 sec. I did a 100 crop, some white balance and smart sharpening in Photoshop. I wondered if there was...
Unfortunately, the building has very few windows and absolutely none on the side facing the harbor. But from the front step of our building you can look up a not so broad "Broad Street"(left) or see some interesting reflections (right):
Yeah, it's a great location in summer, but can be pretty brutal when it's cold. We are closer to the water than the Custom House which is up near the Bowling Green "Bull". The building behind the Governor's Island Ferry is 0ne New York Plaza. I work at 4 New York Plaza just behind the Sullivan...
Even if you don't buy your ring there, you should take a walk around the Diamond Center in NYC - 47th Street between 5th and Avenue of the Americas. You will learn much. It's a very competitive place.
Strobist Exercise #1
I used Camera Control to experiment with about 50 "takes" for this assignment. Limited model choice, but off camera lighting is very versatile.
This is my preferred "Post Office" head shot.
And this one brings out my "dark side"
I experienced the same symptoms the other day when I dropped one of my SB800's on the kitchen floor. No external damage, but it wouldn't fire. However I was relieved when I noticed that I had replaced the fifth battery in the wrong direction. (it popped out when the unit hit the floor). Check...
I actually used Nikon Camera Control. Hooked my camera up to my computer, set up a tripod, used a remote SB-800 an took about 30-40 shots at our kitchen table as I watched the images come up on my laptop screen.

You will be amazed at what this camera will do for you! See my Champions on Ice images for examples of the noise you might experience under the demanding conditions of an ice show. By the way, I grew up in Mount Angel in the 50's and 60's. Where is your home?
