I have a brand new 5D Mark III (which is awesome) and was testing its hypersync capabilities with the PW Mini TT1 and an Einstein with the PW MC2.
After my testing, I was ecstatic when I thought I had gotten as high as 1/8000th sec. without any black band in the photo. But when I looked at the info on the picture itself (on the back of the camera), I found out I had only gotten as high as 1/200th sec. In other words, my camera didn't let me go any faster than 1/200th sec., even though I was on manual and the LCD on top showed 1/8000th sec.
So, is there a setting somewhere in the menu that allows me to override the camera limiting me to 1/200th sec when I have a flash on (or PW, in this case)? With the PW attached, the menu doesn't give me the option of selecting high-speed synchronization when I go to External speed light control > Flash function settings.
Hope that was clear enough...
