Shutter sync, ISO questions
May 23, 2012

Many old film cameras had an upper end shutter sync of 1/60s. And it still seems to work fine to still use 1/60th. What is the reasoning to shoot at a faster shutter speed with power packs, monolights other than it can be done with modern cameras?

Second question, many advocate shooting at around ISO 100. With newer cameras with exceptional higher ISO capability, why not shoot at let's say ISO 400?, near instant recycle times, less wear on flash units, lower power settings, higher comfort level to clients not being pelted with a near full power charge.
