film anyway and was happy to discover that the images came out okay.

try it yourself.


Yes, folks, Kyle is right! I tried it with my Leica and it worked. In
fact, you can use shutter speeds lower than 1/125 too, in manual mode,
you don't _have_ to use 1/250 for flash synch. 

Kyle, you were talking about the R8, right? Please tell me I'm not
making an a**hole of myself here. ;-)
