    LS lenses at 1/800th Flash Sync (and above)...

    Got any examples?

    So many talk of needing the higher sync speed, but I never see examples of medium format shots at wide apertures with flash sync'd above 1/400th.

    Just curios as to whether anyone wants to share their examples...

    Adam,

    Great shots, but they don't require HSS, do they? All of your subject exposure is from the flash.

    I would expect the HSS feature would be useful in daytime. I have a similar jumping shot on slide film shot at 1/500 that would have benefited from even higher shutter speeds.

    With digital, at ISO 25, I rarely exceed my 1/125 limits even if I wanted to.

    The shot with the water bottle was taken outside on a bright sunny day. The background behind the athlete was a blue sky.

    The dancer shot was taken at night but with a decent level of artificial light so you could focus. So the high speed was there to cut out the ambient.

    I mainly shoot motocross bikes in action so do use it for that, mainly to freeze action where a 1/250sec sync on a DSLR wouldn't do it. Like this one...

    1/800th of a second sync speed - Hasselblad 100mm HC f2.2

    Probably one of the best lenses I've ever used.

    Oops, didn't understand the point of this. I thought you were asking for lenses that had a wide aperture and have a sync speed of over 1/800.

    Anyways here is an example: No Photoshop, no montage. Just light, and 1/800 sync speed

    I brought my PhaseOne rig to Burning Man. Shot f/4 at 1/1600 sec all day with a beauty dish. Amazing. Here's one example.

    Also, most for these were shot at 1/1600 sec in Hawaii:

    Except for the light painting one, that was 30 seconds!

    Hope that helps!

    Even BETTER shots, then.
