albeit an external one with a HSS mode. Otherwise the shutter speed would be stuck at 1/180. I tried the water droplet photos sometime back with a Fuji HS10 that I used to have and they came out okay. The advantage of having an electronic shutter, I guess. You can sync flash, even wirelessly, to upto 1/2500 second.
With low ambient light you don't need HSS, the flash is what freezes the motion, not the shutter speed. A flash at low power can effectively give you 1/20,000 second exposure, even if the camera is at 1/180.

I was thinking more like shooting in normal daytime ambient light but ofcourse, you are correct. That will put in things in a new light for Sachin, I am sure. Sorry for the bad pun
