Other than kgbruce01's response you got some spot-on advice. High ISO IQ has evolved to the point where shooting at ISO400 has merit as you are aware of. In the studio, the smaller aperture from the higher ISO has no detrimental effects outside of inflaming kgbruce01's apparent hemmorhoid. Ignore brutes like him.

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.
