High Speed Sync
|Next recommended reading: PowerTracking|
The MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 support High Speed Sync (HSS) for Canon and FP Sync for Nikon. No configuration is necessary for the radios.
- If you have a Nikon camera, adjust the Flash Sync Speed setting in the Custom menu to 1/250s (AutoFP) for most cameras. The D600 and D610 need to be set to 1/200s (AutoFP).
- If you are using a Canon flash as an on-camera flash, attached to the transmitting radio, it needs to be set to HSS. It is not necessary to set remote Canon flashes to HSS.
HSS/FP is seamlessly engaged with the default settings at appropriate shutter speeds, letting you synchronize flashes that support HSS/FP at any speed.
Keep in mind that flashes actually pulse and act as a continuous light in this mode, which significantly reduces effective flash power.
