    Flash Sync Speed

    Except for occasional use in TTL I work in M exclusively (when using flash) so this is perhaps why I have had difficulty getting my head round this, but your explanation makes a lot of sense. Cheers

    Flash Sync Speed

    OK but let us say I decide I can hand hold steady at 1/60, why would I set my sync speed to 1/60, what is the point when I can just leave at 1/250 allowing me to alter my shutter speed at will without having to adjust sync speed every time I adjust shutter speed?

    Flash Sync Speed

    Flash Sync Speed

    In my case, and sorry if I have detracted from the OP. it is simply to understand why we have so many sync speed settings in camera? I dont understand the need for any other than max sync speed, hss is not relevant to my question nor (I think is ambient light) So, if I set my camera at max...

    Im not sure I understand you, I understand that you control ambient light with shutter speed but not sure if your comment is referring to that or with regards to my question which was why would you use other 'in-camera' sync speed settings than the max? In other words why would you bother to set...

    Flash Sync Speed

    What reasons are there to set the sync speed other than at max? Is there any advantage if shooting at 1/160 to set sync speed to 1/160 as against 1/250?
