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.
