That is very strange, since I believe that the camera can sync at very high speeds (like 1/1000).  Something must be set funny somewhere else.  Does the camera indeed sync correctly in manual at 1/500 sec say?



Setting it to a higher speed seems to work ok.


But yea, I unfortunately I think I'll be limited to shutter priority and manual modes...

Thanks. I played around with it this weekend and found that the metering just loves 1/30 when the flash is attached. If I point it directly at a light I can get the shutterspeed up higher, but even with a brightly lit subject, it favors 1/30.  As for ISO, in AUTO mode, it appears to be pegged at 100, even if its dark.  Alternatively, and strangely, if I manually pick a high ISO, it seems like it doesnt properly account for it in the metering, and the picture comes out over exposed.

The camera know's there is a flash and that it is TTL, there is an icon that lights up on the screen.


It seems to default to 1/30 for every aperture I set it at.  I think this was the behavior for old camera's based off of the flash synch speeds, but I would have thought with a modern flash and camera it would do something much faster
