I currently use a Nikon D1/D1H to take high speed objects, often at night. I have them sync with a strobe via a hotshoe (I think this is the setup anyway, but it works with the strobe!).
I am looking to upgrade the cameras as we are starting to experience issues.
Can anyone recommend a modern camera that would be able to meet these demands? I have had a look and it seems that for most cameras the flash sync speed would not be up to the standards needed for these use cases.
Some reading lead me to look at "auto fp high speed sync" or focal plane options. But they still seem to have relatively limited speeds. In and around 1/350th for the d7000 for example.
Thanks for any help!
Please post a comment if I can provide more information that would help you with your recommendations.
UPDATE This is a stationary camera that takes a photo of the same object moving at high speed throughout the day. The subject is quite close to the camera and with the current set up the strobe is more than adequate to light the subject perfectly.
I am not overly technical when it comes to camera, so the more you can dumb it down the better! :-)
