I have been experimenting with the X100's sync speed and built in ND filter. What a remarkable combination. I recently shot this young singer using the X100 at 1/1000th f5.6.

Not all flashes will put out at 1/1000....flash duration etc stuff.

Found that out this morning using 1/1000 with my Sunpak 622 beast at a beach location.

Tested when I returned and 500th on the X100 is the max with the 622. So X100 people if you use off camera flash check its max power output at high shutter speeds.

ND filter use is great for off camera flash at least in bright conditions....love it. I'm using this camera more than my Pentax K5....what's happening to me ?

Good shots, thanks
