    i'm reposting here, bc it has occured (how do you spell that?) to me that its not just a flash unit, but a flash unit with the fp function? and they started calling them speedlights since they could sync with faster shutter speeds? can someone varify that? or does someone else know exactly where the term speedlight camre from?
