Hi All

 

 I own a Sony Rx100 with a Inon S2000  in a Meikon Case and I am very happy with the results so fat but  I feel the need to progress and have more posibilities, flexibility mainly related to Les Option.

 

 I have putted my eye in  the Nex 5T or the Nex 6 but feel stopped by its max flash sync speed of 1/160.

 

  I  would like to ask to the Nex series owner How this flash sync limitiation has affected them.

 

 

 Thanks

 Kind Regards

its mainly limiting for getting darker backgrounds and for fast moving animals in bright shallow conditions

The NEX-6 does have a hotshoe and theoretically possible to hardwire the N5 connector to it.

i used an off camera flash with my nex 7 and was able to push the sync to 1/200 with no problems. at 250 I was seeing black bars in 5-10% of the frame. this was topside. not uw.
