so if the einstein's duration is around 1/650 and i get my shutter speed above that, then i should be ok, correct? lets say i'm outside on a bright day, my shutter speed might be around 1/1250 or more. so thats considerably faster than the einstein unit. that's one of the uses that i would need that high speed sync for to work.

The exception would be if you were using a leaf shutter. These can sync at higher shutter speeds but in the case you pointed out only half of the Einstein flash power would be used and there would be restrictions imposed by any triggering system used too.

Theres only one sun. Why do I need more than one light to get a natural result?
