yup, some cameras have a max flash sync speed and the camera cannot go faster. the way to resolve this would be to use a smaller aperture or to use a neutral density filter.
there're also cameras that could recompute the shutter speed to e.g. 1/800s or even faster when flash is being used.... examples of these are cameras that support high-speed flash sync or some of the prosumer digicams like Fujifilm S602Z, S7000 that could even sync with an external flash at the fastest shutter speed of 1/10000s for close-up shots.

OOps.. Ok. I am using a Canon EOS 33. The flash sync speed is 1/125 secs.
