Is it the same as on the H4D 1/800?

Hasselblad H system flash syncs at all flash speeds  the fastest being 1/800.
You can do all the high speed sync things the Phase One DF and LS lenses can do, but just one stop slower.
A 1 stop ND filter and more flash power and you can get the same sun control.

There are some very good examples of the Hasselblad High Speed sync capabilities in a previous thread:

+1 Fred
And to mention that 1/1600 sync speed on PhaseOne needs Profoto's AirSync + V Grip Air.

And a later back..... + backs onwards i think.

however ... in the real world syncing at 1/800th is fast and having this ability solves a lot of problems....

If you shoot in a hot country after 9:30 am (weddings or interiors) then 1/1600 might be needed...

I just think we are lucky to have not one but two specialist manufacturers providing us with these terrific lenses.

Hassy V and Bronica and Rollei were 1/500th not that long ago.

Where I live (northern parts of Sweden) we don't have a lot of hard sunlight. Maybe during the middle of the day I'll need 1/800 otherwise I think 1/400 will be enough in most situations.

Another thing to keep in mind is that with the Hasselblad H system you still have high speed flash sync if you use the Hasselblad H tilt shift adapter.
The Schnieder tilt shift lens on the DF can only use the focal plane shutter.
