So I am a bit stymied.
I have a Canon 5d Mark iv, a Flashpoint Rapid 400 HSS, and the Flashpoint X1-C trigger to go on top of the camera.
Both the Flashpoint models are set to be capable of handling HSS up to 1/8000. Problem is, the Mark iv isn't letting me TOUCH the HSS menu without a speedlite?
Am I missing something? I really hope I'm missing something, because I'd hate to think I have this great setup and am severely limited to 1/200 at most. I don't want to work with Speedlites, but with full blown tanks.
I've read about getting a Pocket Wizard to fake HSS by using hypersync, but I'm not looking for having to keep 1/1 power on my light and spend yet another 250-500 dollars for the pleasure.
Is there a way to get the Mark iv to allow me to turn on the HSS without a speedlite?
Thank you for any help you can give.

You won't get the camera to turn on HSS without a fully compatible flashgun or trigger, it doesn't have to be a Canon speedlight.
Either you have things set incorrectly or your flash system is not as compatible as it claims to be, if in doubt contact the flash manufacturers.
