Re: No camera issue at all - studio flashes are different from speedlights

1/60s or 1/200s shutterspeed makes very little difference in studio shooting with studio lights because usually ambient light is very low in a studio. Most if not all the light comes from the studio strobes. That's why most studio lights don't have high speed sync systems. I usually shoot below 1/125s. This changes dramatically with outdoor shoots, of course, where you are essentially trying to balance ambient light and strobe light. That's where shutterspeed plays a bigger role.

Thanks kysham,

I guess I thought I was erring on the side of caution,making sure no ambient was creeping into the shot by selecting a faster shutter speed.Thanks for the advice.
