FZ200, synchronisation and external flash
Jun 10, 2014

Apologies if this has been asked before - I don't have a FZ200 myself and am being driven nuts by my curiosity after a little discussion started up in another forum.

For those of you who have an FZ200, I wonder whether you have ever used it with a non-dedicated flash mounted directly on the hotshoe (of recent safe trigger voltage, of course)?  If so, is it possible to persuade the camera to operate with that flash at a fast shutter speed (say, 1/2000) and if so, how does the image look?  I'd actually be interested to know how it turns out if the result is unsuccessful as this will help answer the question that's arisen!

Of course, if the mere presence of a flash in the hot shoe limits its shutter speed in any way, I'm not going to learn much, but any insights would be much appreciated.

Thanks very much...
