Hi everyone, I went out today to take some photos....While I was standing there scratching my head, I couldn't for the life of me remember about the tic marks and flash. Here's my question. Had my camera on manual, aperature on 8, iso 400, using on sb600 flash. I had my shutter speed on 1/60, ( I don't have the foggiest idea why I didn't change it) but my question is this..When You pop on the flash, does it matter a whole lot what the tic marks read? It looked like a correct exposure as I viewed it on the lcd, so I didn't really worry about it a whole lot even though I was shaking my head thinking "geeze, I should know this stuff by now"!
And also, can someone refresh my memory on what the difference it would have been had I shot at the sync speed of 200 instead of letting it stay on 60? I am mush right now, must be the heat. Thanks pals.
