Flash causing shutter delay

After using the flash many times without issues, attaching the flash to my a9 is having the effect of causing a delay in the firing of the shutter. I press the shutter button, the flash produces a strobe effect for a second or so and then the shutter fires (with the flash). I've tried the same flash on another a9 body and it's fine. What's the story here? Thanks.

Re: Flash causing shutter delay

Check the Red Eye Reduction setting on the "Camera Settings 1" (camera icon) menu.
