I know what you say CAN be certainly true for the highest speeds of some
cameras, but I did not know it was specifically related to the synch
speed...I believe it's more related to shutter design than specifically tied
to sync speed. Would you mind citing a source for that information?
That is certainly not the case with vertical shutters, which all but one of
my 35mm cameras have (Contaxes and Nikons), the exception being my Leica M.
