High Speed Sync (HSS)

High speed sync is a way of firing a flash while using a shutter speed faster than the usual sync speed of approximately 1/250s.  With this setting, a flash will fire multiple, quick bursts to make sure the whole sensor is exposed to the flash’s light.

This allows for some great photo effects, but will drastically lower the distance at which the flash will be effective.
