wonderful photo - thanks for sharing!!! Just curious, how were you able to get a 1/320 shutter speed while using a flash? I thought most max snyc speeds were ~1/200.

The D-300 and most Nikon DSLR's have a sync speed of 1/250. Each one has its own personality and I lucked out with mine as I can get to near 1/400 before seeing a shutter curtain

Thanks for the response, Ben! I'll have to try pushing mine and see what I can get. Cheers

If you trigger the quadra with the PW and there latest update software, you can trigger up to 1/3200

I wish my camera would do that. Pentax cameras won't even let you try to go above the max sync speed -- they just don't even try to trigger the flash when you are beyond the limit.

This is difference between canon and nikon, their 5D mk2 shits all over at 1/160, though it is supposed to do well till 1/200, But nikon they go up to 1/320 though they are supposed to go up till 1/250. Nikon makes camera's with great passion !
