Nikon D610 Flash High Speed Sync Issue

Hi all!

 

I got my D610 back in November 2015 & on one of my shoots in late December decided to try out the AutoFP (High speed sync) flash mode.

 

I was using my onboard popup flash to wirelessly trigger a slave SB700 (attached to a softbox) and a 85mm 1.8 lens.

 

I was able to get shutter speeds of up to 1/1000 or even 1/2000 of a second with '1/250 AutoFP' flash mode enabled with the setup described above. Thus allowing me to shoot nice wide apertures of f1.8 in the daytime.

 

However recently (last week) I tried the same thing with the exact same setup but I wasn't able to go below 1/250 of a second for my shutter speed!

 

I have tried to resolve this issue with Nikon but they haven't been very helpful at all.

 

I've attached a couple of photos from the first shoot I mentioned where I was able to get shuttter speeds of 1/2000th of a second.

 

Can anyone help me out here please?

 

All the best!

Since the native sync speed is 1/200s, I would expect the camera to allow you to choose that shutter speed (or slower) if you disabled the HSS mode on the flash, no?

Hi Adam thanks for your reply,

 

How would I go about doing that?

 

Both times I used the camera/flash, it was on TTL.. if that helps?!

 

All the best,

With the D610 and SB-700 you will have to set FP sync in the camera as the SB-700 was the first auto-switching speedlite from Nikon. You set the sync mode in the flash sync menu.
