p.1 #1 · 1DS MK II + PW Tt's


I am using a 1Ds Mark II and the Tti plus Tt5's. I am only getting a clean 1/320 sec sync with the hypersync. Just curious to know what other users are getting with the same system as me...and if you are able to attain high hypersync.

Hi John,

What strobes are you using?

Ah, that's the problem. Hypersync is mainly for use with studio strobes that have long flash durations. With Speedlites you can't get good results with Hypersync because the flash duration is too short (thus the name SPEEDlite). Also, the lower the power, the shorter the duration...just the opposite of most studio strobes. (The Einstein and other IGBT/thyristor-controlled strobes are the exception; they're like Speedlites.)

For Speedlites you need to use High Speed Sync, not Hypersync. I don't know about the 420EX, but the 580EX and 430EX both have that feature.

HSS is no good to me as I am shooting close action photography and need to freeze the subject.

You can't do that with a fast shutter speed? Using High Speed Sync, your 1Ds Mark II can shoot up to 1/8000 second.
