Thinking about how fill in flash is used. Whats the fastest shutter speed I can use it with on my 550D, either the built in or a 430 EX II on the hotshoe?

As you have the equipment you should be able to tell.
Just try it using the TV mode. If I switch on the internal flash I can get a 1/200 sec on my 500D and with my 580EX II with enabled high speed sync I can get any shutter speed.

Jiko- Fair point :P

In my defense guvnor I wasnt at home and didnt have my camera with me. I was in a Nero's faffing with a cribcard and the question came into my head. I posted here and then googled it too :oops: shame on me :oops:

So yes its the same here, 1/200 'normal' flash and any speed in Hi Speed mode
