I think I figured it out, someone please just confirm. Go into camera settings menu and choose "Auto FP" and set it to ON.. Is that all that needs to be done? Anyway of verifying the flash is synching at the proper speed?
i was experimenting today with 1/500 and 1/800 and 1/1000 at f/3.5. Great way grab a little more control.. I'm also still learning about lighting with a speedlight but I'm havin a blast so far (all hail strobist).. Monday I'll post some of what I have played with so far..
