You really haven't figured this out yet? The A77 and A99 have slightly different timing and both are within the requirements of the Sony flash systems but the A99 fires too late for the delayed studio system. - TF

Some would have you believe that having to adapt to new technology is a workaround, but having adapted to old technology is photography.

It's not so straight cut though is it..

It's been shown above that the on board flash can optically trigger the studio flash using the slave cell triggering at 1/250th just fine..

And as above, cybersync triggers only add 1/4000th delay according to their specs..

It obviously is that straight cut - the 'umbrella tests' proved it. Either the 1/4000 delay is wrong or that's enough to cause the black band. - TF
