A700 Slow Sync

Unread postby cenwyn » Thu Apr 01, 2010 12:13 am

I see that I have the option with the A700 to use the front curtain sync technique but is there a way to fire the flash at the end of the exposure i.e. rear curtain sync? I'm thinking about those effects where someone appears to be waling forwards, not backwards?

From the menu (2nd page, if I might say so) "Flash mode" and from there you'll notice in the options (3nd from the top) is the Rear sync.

Just to add that Rear Curtain is not Slow Synch ...

You're right Thomas but the question was: (read the below quote)
