Runneth Over by heartyfisher Runneth Over by heartyfisher
Got to full view this !!

Just trying out a new thing I just found out that my camera can do..Ie the ability to take photos at 1/8000 of a second with a flash !!

Sigh.. Probably be more of these flozen water pictures and drops in the next few weeks! hehe!

Very cool! :wow:

I've been trying to do water shots for months now and come up with nada! :crying:

Perhaps I'll try it at the shutter speed you did :nod:

Hey .. D70 user! Yes try it ! its amazing! You need to use a non nikon flash.. or tape the first 2 pins on the flash mount/hot shoe. Good luck!!

are there ways to do this with the D70 & SB600 without taping over pins on the hot shoe?

Hi elfinarts, You can do it the old way ie set the flash power to something fairly low like 1/32 or 1/64 power and set shutter to 1/500 speed in manual mode. then do some test shots and adjust the aperture till you get the correct exposure for the required distance (which would not be too far since the flash is in such a low power).
You will want fairly low surrounding light so that the shutter speed does not play a part in the exposure but rather let the low power flash be the main source of light.

The problem with the D70 and the sb600 is that it limits the shutter speed when it doesnt need to. There is no way to set the shutter speed to 8000th of a second and have the nikon flash attached. The reason you need to tape the 2 pins is to stop the Nikon flash from telling the camera to limit the shutter speed. If you have a non nikon flash then you can set the shutter to 1/8000 and take the photos as I did. Hope this helps..
