Sync speed

Couple questions here,
I read max sync speed is 1/180
why can't I set my camera to that speed? My k30 will go 1/160 then 1/200
in addition, I've run into an issue with my aputure triggers where it won't sync above 1/100
they are rated for 1/250 but anything above 1/100 doesn't seem to work.
anyone run into this kind of issue?
I was using Fomex d400 studio lights and a yongnou 560ii neither would sync above 1/100

oddly enough, with my old retro pentax AF160 in the hot shoe, I can't change the shutter speed above 1/180. If I put in the yongnuo,I can go above 1/180, (actually it goes from 160->200) I can go higher, but it won't sync.

Well, found out my trigger is slightly wonky. Using another trigger, I can sync to 1/160, but how can I get my K30 to go to 1/180 speed? It just skips over it unless I have the AF160 in the hot shoe.

If you change your EV steps from 1/3 to 1/2 you'll be able to (manually) select a shutter speed of 1/180 (at least that's true on my K-5, as I just discovered yesterday).

Oh great, I'll try that thanks. I'd like to be able to get my max sync speed if I need to really darken a background. Thanks!
