Maybe you’ve had your camera for some time, but have never gotten around to looking at custom shooting modes. That was me too, and as they can be useful tools, I thought that we should spend some time talking about them.
We are going to talk about a really powerful – but occasionally misunderstood – flash tool called HSS, or High Speed Sync.
This feature allows us to achieve a proper flash exposure at a shutter speed much higher than the default flash synchronization speed. It’s absolutely brilliant and on many camera / flash combinations that support High Speed Sync, it’s often just a switch setting.
