Re: Reason for slow flash sync speed

I sure wish it was higher,  and it could be, My Old Nikon FM2 has 1/250 with fully mechanical shutter.  Nikon D70 is set at 1/500!

I suspect it is a compromise between size, speed, and longevity.  Ligher faster shutters must not last as long as slower more stout pieces.  But it is only speculation
