Yesterday while doing a shoot I had my lights setup and with a sink cord on one of them and the other a slave. every time I would push down on the shutter I would get a shock from the center of the button. I ended up not useing the mono flashes and just the flash on the camera. It was so strange. the next set worked fine.. What could be wrong ?

is your sync cord kinked or really old?? It's possible your flash head is putting out too much sync voltage.

What brand name flash units are you using?

And don't laugh, do you have a small cut on your shutter finger? Your skin has excellent electrical resistance properties, when you have a cut you can feel a charge from a small battery.

Course it could be aliens.

I have 3 JTL mono lights... I had them pluged into an outside outlet when I was getting shocked. I'm thinking maybe the ground on the outlet may have been dirty and did not make a good connection.
no cuts on my finger..
