might one want to shoot with no shutter to catch fast flashes/explosions? i would imagine the chance of the camera completely missing a flash would be greater if there is a longer space of time between end of exposure of one frame and the beginning of the next. of course this also has a specific effect on the images, so its not appropriate if you really need to use a high shutter to avoid motion blur. but with the shutter open, the beginning of one frame and end of the next should be nearly the same time.

i really dont see how long gop would affect the cameras ability to render an explosion except that it would be tough on the encoder since the explosion would suddenly change the scene, making it harder to compress. it would just be more affected by this fast/noisy motion than an i-frame only codec.
