Techie: X100 Sync Speeds

January 11, 2012

So I’m heading off on honeymoon soon and instead of taking my big Nikon and various lenses I’m taking the little Fuji X100. Other than it’s size, one of the key benefits of the X100 is the Leaf shutter allowing some pretty crazy sync speeds. High sync speeds are good, they allow my flashes to overcome more daylight and effectively increase their power meaning I can carry smaller flashes.

X100 taped up ready for battle.

Anyway to cut a long story short I thought I’d better test out those sync speeds to see what I could get with various flash/trigger combos.
