    If the D80's flash sync is only 1/200 then that's as fast as you can go, AFAIK.

    Why, would you need it faster? Who is moving that fast?

    The flash sync is a function of the camera's shutter not the flash unit.

    The faster the flash sync, the less ambient light there will be to affect the exposure. If the ambient exposure is 1/60th of a second, and your sync speed is 1/500th, than your subject will be lit and everything else will be three stops underexposed, if your flash sync is 1/125th, than the background would only be 1 stop underexposed. vise-versa for overexposure.

    Faster flash sync's give you more control over your flash photography.

    You got your answer. Try and be a little more respectful to members who are trying to help you. The sync speed is there because there is a curtain passing over the sensor. If you set the shutter speed faster than the sync speed, the light from the flash will be cut off by the shutter.

    Asking questions helps us get to the root of what you want to do, so we can help you best. If you don't want to answer it, then it's your loss, but you don't need to get snippy.

    relax.

    people might just wonder why you need it since often people want something they do not really need. so hence one gets to the root and help can be more specific in the answer.

    also someone might just ask out of curiousity so he himself can learn something from you (e.g. where a faster sync is of importance)!

    If you want to learn from others, you should others allow to learn from you. If you get a question in return, this normally does not indicate evil intentions ;)

    Keep in mind this is not a hotline or some place which offers any service ... this is a place where people discuss. a great place for that by the way :)

    I totally get that, but I'm assuming - based on the question being asked - that this isn't the OP's intent?

    Someone call the cops - theres been a murder. The English language never deserved to die like this.

    Anyway - good luck in the future mate, I'm guessing you're gonna need it.
