sync speed, FP mode depend upon the flash used

Max sync speed for on camera flash is 1/250. For off camera it's 1/180. FP Mode should get you to 1/4000. I haven't tried a shutter speed anywhere near that fast but I have been over 1/1000 with no unexpected ill effects.

Max sync speed with EM5 on or off camera depends on the flash used - I think it is 1/160 with FL50r and 1/200 with FL36r, FL600r and FL300r without using FP mode.  Unfortunately, FL300r does NOT support FP mode.  Covering the contacts to get higher sync speed has been discussed before.
