Hey POTN-

I picked up mono light the other day to experiment with some studio stuff and I tested it out using 3 connections-

A) My yongnuo triggers
B) slaved using other flashes upon firing
C) and just to make sure it works, wired with the cable.

Now it went well, but I noticed that at 1/200 and 1/250, I got the black bars from the curtain closing....

At 1/160, all was well. Sharp image with no interference from the shutter...

What is the max sync speed for the 5dc? I looked on dpreview but could not find it.

Is this a limitation of the camera(i think not) or am I doing something wrong with the flash settings?

Thanks guys!


edit- and I guess I should go into more detail-

First off, I am aware that there is a max...in case it's written poorly, I am not trying to figure out HSS....I just want to know what my max sync speed is for the 5d. I assumed it to either be 1/200 or 1/250...was just surprised that it seemed to be 1/160.

Second, I believe this was happening whilst using the yongnuo triggers. I read somewhere that this problem went away upon using better triggers?
If thats the case, then ill deal because 1/160 will be fast enough for most anything anyway.

I use 1/160 in studio and they have profoto and other strobes there. 1/200 I get the bar already. Since your exposure comes from the short duration of the strobe, it doesn't really matter in regards to stopping action, never had a problem at 1/160, ISO 100 f8


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:

300ws mono light in 43" shoot thru umbrella at camera right with slight angle.

And that was 1/160, 200 iso, f11 I believe.

Hey thanks dude. That's what I figured.

If it's 1/160, then it's obv not an issue, I just thought it was faster and wanted to make sure it wasn't me...

Apparently your doing good to get 1/160 sync with studio flash. Manual says 1/125. The sync speed with small flashes is 1/200.

I used 1/200 with my rf-603 and small flashes. Never tried strobes.

I've used Cactus v5's and Cybersyncs on Speedlites (Canon and YN) and Alien Bees. At 1/200 I get just a hint of a shadow from the shutter. 1/160 eliminates it. I always attributed it to the slight delay from the radio triggers.

When using Yongnou 603's with my Einsteins and Alien Bees, I have to set my shutter speed at 1/125th on my 6D and 1/160th on my 7D. With YN-622s, I can shoot at 1/160 on my 6D and 1/200 on my 7D. With Cybersyncs I can shoot at the max sync speeds of 1/180 on the 6D and 1/250 on the 7D.

Ya, figured it was the triggers.

No biggie.

1/160 is fast enough for me!

And I do get 1/200 on my strobes.

The manual? Is that a new concept? :)
