My consumer level FA (film) had a flash sync of 1/250th with a mechanical (obviously) shutter.
I bought it for that reason to use as a macro camera. And someone asked who would really notice the difference between 1/200 and 1/250....well, it seems to me the answer is macro guys. I can take razor sharp hand held macro shots at small apertures (f16) with 1/250th sync speed:
How will 1/200th effect shots like this? I don't know but it remains a concern to me.
