|[1/200 s (Auto FP)]||Auto FP high-speed sync is enabled with compatible flash units and the maximum sync speed for other flash units is set to 1/200 s.|
|[1/200 s]||Flash sync speed set to selected value, which can be from 1/200 to 1/60 s.|
Fixing shutter speed at the flash sync speed limit
In modes S and M, shutter speed can be fixed at the value selected for Custom Setting e1 [Flash sync speed] by setting the shutter-speed dial to X. An X (flash sync indicator) will appear in the shooting display together with the flash sync speed.
Auto FP high-speed sync
- Auto FP high-speed sync allows the flash to be used at the highest shutter speed supported by the camera. When [1/200 s (Auto FP)] is selected, the camera automatically enables auto FP high-speed sync at shutter speeds faster than the flash sync speed. This makes it possible to choose the maximum aperture for reduced depth of field even when the subject is backlit in bright sunlight.
