    Nikon and Auto FP Sync on D5100 (HSS)

    Is it because of a technical limitation that they do not have Auto FP Sync on the D5100 bodies nor the new D5200? or is it because they are just being an evil company?

    None of Nikon's compact entry level cameras - D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D3200, D5000, D5100, D5200 - have never been Auto FP sync capable.

    You'll find the same situation in Canon's camera lineup. Canon's most basic DSLR's don't have Canon HSS.

    Note: The D40, D40x (and non-compact D70, D70x) used a shutter that was turned on and off electronically at shutter speeds faster than 1/200. So the D40. D40x can x-sync flash to 1/500 and with a lot of hot shoe flash units can x-sync all the way up to 1/4000.

    Photography is at its core an attempt to represent the reality of light in a media that canít faithfully reproduce it.
