Re: New 5DIV arrived trouble with Flash Sync Speed over 1/125 sec

I've owned three 5-series bodies and when using wireless triggers (various brands) I've never got one to sync above 1/125th - despite the advertised 1/200th sync speed. Welcome to the land of the 5D!

Similarly, my 80D syncs at 1/160th and occasionally 1/200th (though I don't even bother trying any more) when using wireless triggers despite a 1/250th advertised sync speed.
