Flash Photography with the EOS-Dedicated 550EX Speedlite
High-Speed Sync (FP Flash)
When the 550EX Speedlite is set to high-speed sync
mode, it can automatically
synchronize at any shutter speed of 1/200 second or faster, thus providing high-speed sync
(FP) flash operation. When high-speed sync is On, the
icon appears in the viewfinder.
High-speed sync is effective for portrait photography in the following situations:
(1) When you want to use daylight sync flash for a portrait, and widen the aperture (reduce
the aperture value) to blur the background.
(2) When you want to produce a catchlight in the subject’s eyes.
(3) When you want to use fill flash to eliminate shadows.
