I welcome comments and am curious to hear technical refinements, if necessary.
How do other cameras pair up with max flash-sync speed?
Nikon D70 (1/500), Nikon D700 (1/250), Nikon D4 (1/250), Nikon D600 (1/200)
Canon 5D (1/200), Canon 5D Mark III (1/200), Canon 6D (1/180)
Older-medium format cameras like Mamiya AFD & Contax 645 (1/125)
Hasselblad 500 C/M (1/500), Hasselblad H4D-40 (1/800), PhaseOne IQ series backs w/645DF (1/1600)
The D70 and D70s can reliably sync with strobes as high as 1/4000th thanks to the electronic second curtain.
With some strobes it can even do 1/8000th. Their is only loss of strobe power if the strobe is slower than the chosen
shutter speed (as would happen with any leaf shutter system). While this is a 6 MP camera it is the most versatile high speed sync camera with strobes and you are not
limited to a small amount of lenses.
The Fuji x10 can go up to 1/4000th.
Here is an example shot with the x100 with wireless sync and strobe.http://www.flickr.com/photos/paulpridephoto/6890265956/
