My D610 doesnt synch well @ 1/200s with the skyport. Always had that black part. Slowing down to 1/160 is fine. But somehow in the studio environment when doing horiz & vert back and forth my thumb accidentally turn the speed to 1/200 and without realising it until the end of photoshoot, all the images had that black part. Its fustrating. I had to always watch out the speed of 1/160 in the viewfinder.

Is the D610 that slow to synch?

Any help pls.



The D610 syncs up to 1/200 without any problems, and up to 1/4000 if your strobes support HSS.

You should check the max sync speed of your strobes as many have a max of 1/125 or 1/160. What model of strobe(s) are you using?


I'm using the economical Dlite series.
