Robert, I completely agree. A certain amount of flashes going off gives a "live" look to a video. When you want to minimize it, you can use filters or manually edit a frame. You can take the brightness way down in a flash affected frame and even though the detail is gone because the frame was overexposed due to the flash, you don't miss the detail in a single frame. It's important to set the timeline to show absolute frames and expand the timeline enough to see each individual frame if you want to do this. With the brightness reduced in the affected frame, you don't see the flash when you render the clip. You can even mask and adjust a fraction of a frame that you can get with CMOS rolling shutter.

That brings up a good point. It's tempting for some who may be insecure to pose in the picture with their equipment rather than the other way around. It's as if they are using their equipment as "proof" of their skill. A real pro can shine with some pretty basic equipment. That's not to say that they can't do even more with good equipment. The other way around is a different story. Good equipment doesn't fix anything for someone who doesn't know how to use it.
