Hey guys,

I feel kind of stupid for asking this question :sad: I've had my 550 for a while which I use for interior shots. I rarely go over 1/60s.Think I've got a hold oninterior flash shots:G I've never used it, outdoors, for fillflashthough :O I was playing around with it andnoticed that the max shutter speed is 1/250s. What if I need a faster shutter speed, how do get a faster speed? I was thinking of taking some photos at the zoo, first time,and wanted to use my flash but 1/250s seems a bit slow. BTW I'm using a 20D.

Thanks!

Chris

On the back of the 550EX - press both the '+' and '-' at once until a flash dark icon with H appears
-> This is the High-Speed Sync mode, but bear in mind that as the shutter speed goes up the flash range is considerably reduced...
