500th of a second synch speed on D800 !!!!(with studio flash)

500th of a second synch speed on D800 !!!! Sometimes even more like 100th of second...
Well a lot of you will say were is that setting?????
But since the D800 has 36MP and in many cases 24MP is
more then enough you just use a wider lens than you´d need
and frame the camera so that the subject is in the lower part of your
When you expose you get that black bar in the upper 20 % of your frame

across your picture.. but since you got a wider lens and more then ample resolution
you can crop that top off and only use the exposed 80 % of the frame...
you can even go higher with your synch if you crop more..
Something you cant do with a camer awith lesser MP and still have enough
picture quality..
Try it out it works !
thats a small trick for the D800 !
