| p.1 #5 · Flash Sync speed problems with Elinchrom BXRI/Speed EL |
supposedly the 5d mk ii syncs at 1/200th. It works fine at 1/200 with a phottix strato ii and alien bees but the batteries have to be fresh on the phottix or else the same issue occurs.
Yeah, one can sometimes get the 5D and 5D Mark II to sync at 1/200 with other than Speedlites, but it's not a sure thing, which is why Canon leans to the conservative side in the user guides. A direct-connect flash gun can usually do it, but a monolight may not be able to due to the flash curve, and any unit fired with radio remotes may not be able to due to propagation delay.
