    G10 shutter speed with strobe.

    Not sure if this was mentioned before but I discovered it by accident cause I don't read instruction booklets

    The G10 (probably other models as well) can't shoot a faster shutter speed than 1/500 when using the strobe because that's its max sync capability with the strobe.

    I shoot in the M mode and was using 1/1000 shutter speed. Little did I know the camera was automatically defaulting to 1/500 when the strobe is on. I discovered it when checking my EXIF data and it showed 1/500. Guess if I read the camera booklet I would have seen it sooner

    Guess you're not the only one that doesn't read manuals....

    BTW... I was playing with my G10 these past few days and can't get the lcd to show anything but info when I go into M mode. The screen turns on briefly as I depress the shutter button to take a picture but no picture gets recorded. Have tried playing with all the buttons on the back but no luck. Any suggestions?

    If you're using external electronic sync, you can get a little higher sync speeds if you know some tricks:

    But can you rig that up to work with an UW flash? Not sure how simple that would be.

    It may take some simple electronics, but it is possible.
