Hi All,

I'm having an issue when using studio strobes where the very bottom of the frame is coming out dark, when I have the shutter set to 1/200th. I realize this is the faster shutter sync speed for the 5D3, but it seem it should be able to get a full exposure cycle before the shutter starts to close. I'm thinking it has something to do with the fact that the Elinchroms I am using are fired via a wireless trigger (perhaps the delay?). I can get a proper exposure at 1/160th, so I may be limited to that, but still find it hard to believe 1/200th is too fast.

Anyone else have this problem? Any work-arounds?

Thanks,

Greg

Maximum flash sync speed listed is for onboard flash. 1/160th is all I get with my lights too, wireless or sync cable.

Page 189 of the 5diii manual says stay at 1/160 or slower for studio strobes. What you are seeing is normal.

No need to feel bad. I think Canon set a record for the most pages in any manual so far with this camera. It will take lots of time to get through it all and try to remember 1/2 of it.
