I don't think what's happening is what you think is happening, but we need more information. What kind of flash are you using? What are your camera settings? What are the ambient light conditions? Are you indoors or outdoors? When you say the picture is too dark, is all of it too dark, or are some parts of the scene properly exposed?

 

You're talking about still pictures, not video; right?

You can have the flash fire either right after the shutter has finished opening ("1st-curtain sync") or right before it begins to close ("2nd-curtain sync").

Hi, the flash starts to flicker when i half press the shutter button. But then when i fully press it wont timed with the capture and sometimes it timed with the flash but the result have no flash on it. Even when im near the objct. This starts to happen a week ago.
