I must be losing my mind... Flash sync question with 1Ds Mark II
Oct 25, 2008

Hi all,

I have owned a 1DS Mark II for three years, Mostly shooting in the studio with studio strobes and manual exposure. When I would shoot outdoors, it was mostly snapshots with an on-camera flash in full program mode... (don't criticize

I need to do more critical on-camera flash work (weddings and events) and I notice that (with the 580 EX on board) the camera's default flash sync is 1/60th of a second.

I have gone through the manual of the flash and the camera, researched online, and cannot figure out how to make the camera default to a higher sync speed, like 1/200 of a second.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Matt
