    wrong. that's the entire point of high speed sync flash.

    read the title of the thread. and you're still wrong, even some "regular" flashes without hss can do hss with added circuitry. read the thread.

    One big reason to be able to use faster shutter speeds with flash is to be able to balance ambient light with flash output. Synching any electronic flash to properly expose an entire sheet of film at any speed becomes quite a project since the slit sizes in the fp curtain varies with the selected speed. There is not a constant slit size or curtain travel speed. So how would you accomplish this with a speed graphic?

    Almost true. 2x3 Pacemaker Speeds -- taboo here, but that's what I have -- have usefully more extension that 2x3 Crowns. Crowns are indeed friendlier to short lenses. I was able to justify having one of each. Others may disagree.

    i've been over this already. it's not complicated or difficult, at all. read my previous comments and pick your favourite option.
