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. I lit her with a Paul Buff Einstein along with his silver 22" beauty dish. I tested the sync speed up to the camera's maximum 1/4000th and it worked so well it reduced the ambient light too much for my taste. I have been able to accomplish this with my regular work gear, but it involved quite a bit more adjustments since my regular rig is constrained to 1/250th sync speed.

I could not be happier with this little camera.

It is normal
