What is HSS?

High-Speed Sync (HSS) is the technical term for syncing flash with shutter speeds shorter than the so-called x-sync, typically 1/250 of a second. With HSS, you can shoot at shutter speeds up to 1/8000. That means you are in full control of the ambient light, which is useful when shooting outdoors in sunlight.
