Does anyone out there know what the maximum shutter speed is on a FZ20 that will sync with my external vivitar flash.....I can't find this info anywhere. Also I've noticed that some of you are putting an eye cup on your FZ's where can I find one that will fit........By the way I just got my Nikon 6T in the other day....and its been raining ever since >>>>>>>>I'M GO'N NUTZ!!!!!:?

One of the advantages of digicams over almost all DSLRs, except the Nikon D70, is that they use electronic shutters which sync at all speeds. Sync-ing at shutter-speeds above 500 is possible but doesn't buy you anything.

Read more about it here: http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/syncspeed.htm

Excerpt:
"...digital cameras usually sync at high speeds like 1/500 because they also have electronic shutters."
