Re: You need to set the 380EX for High Speed Sync.

forgot to mention, in Av mode the shutter speed was not limited by x-sync (see my answer to Corne Ferreira):

File Name IMG_2062.CR2
...
Shooting Mode Aperture-Priority AE
Tv( Shutter Speed ) 1/80
Av( Aperture Value ) 8.0

I'm puzzled...

In normal flash the shutter speed is limited to 1/200, the x-sync speed. For outdoor fill flash in sunlight (like your sample pics) that lets in too much light for the aperture set in Av, or in P the camera may not be able to set a small enough aperture to compensate.
