High-Speed Sync

  • Disabling high-speed sync mode is recommended, if you don’t specifically need it.
  • If you can select a shutter speed above 1/250, then high speed sync is on.

    • Make sure the bounce card and diffuser are firmly pushed in/inserted/locked. If they are the slightest bit out, the flash will default to the widest zoom of 14mm.
  • High-speed sync mode will decrease the number of flashes before the over-heat/over-temperature protection is triggered/activated. e.g. 15 at 1/1 power, vs 30 at 1/1 power without high-speed sync.
