HSS is _completely_ useless in the studio. Well, perhaps also in a brightly sunlit studio, which I have encountered a few times. The 645Z's 1/125th sec sync speed makes that tricky sometimes. HSS is mainly of use outside in the sun with underpowered flashes. Using efficient modifiers (read: silver coated) and at least 500 watt-second strobes you can overpower the sun without needing HSS. There are 3rd party HSS solutions out there that work with Pentax. I'll leave it to you to Google it up. :-) They all sound iffy and klugey to me and I decided to pass on the whole thing. -- -bmw -- PDML Pentax-Discuss Mail List PDML@pdml.net http://pdml.net/mailman/listinfo/pdml_pdml.net to UNSUBSCRIBE from the PDML, please visit the link directly above and follow the directions.
