This might be a stupid question and have not tried this but have been wondering about this for a couple of weeks now and think it might be possible. Let say I was shooting my F80, a manual flash and could override the 1/125s top sync shutter speed. Shooting in sunlight with the right manual output setting on the flash enough not to overtake the ambient light would exposures turn out using faster speeds than 1/125s without the risk of half blacked out frames? It would be simillar to slow flash duration but instead of the flash as the primary light it would be just used as fill flash enough to fill in the shadows.
