The 1/200th sec. flash sync speed is no longer a limitation.
For photographers, especially those doing outdoors photo shoots, often the 1/200th second flash sync speed represents a huge limitation.
By using Hi-sync technology, photographers are now able to:
- Overpower daylight with less power output (or from far away)
- Obtain a high shutter speed to freeze motion
- Use flash with a large aperture and create a narrow depth of field
- Darken backgrounds using a high shutter speed
Hi-Sync also offers more options than any other flash technology, since photographers have more light output at their disposal and no gradation (with the dedicated HS flash head).
For battery-powered units, Hi-Sync uses much less power than other technologies, because the flash head is firing normally instead of a continuous burst like HSS.
