Rob I was never really concerned about flashes in real speed. slo-mo will be a different issue. Are you shooting with the Z7? I will post a short clip for you to see, along with some flashes hopefully this week. But flashes in slo-mo are not going to look good at all.

Yeah, it sucks, but that's the way it goes. I don't worry about it and no one has every said anything....besides, for someone to pick up 1/30th of a second would be quite impressive.

Two had the left-side blurriness, one was sent in. The other, with two more, are on a month-long timelapse and since they've been set up, I can't remove them. And, once that project is done, the cameras will get cleaned and either be donated or put on Ebay. Then I will buy more.
