What is second shutter sync?
Aug 7, 2007

Hi,

I'm new to flash photo, I have a Canon 430EX Speedlite and use it with a 20D. The manual mensions a feature called second shutter sync (or second shutter something), and says that it creates a "trail of light". I don't understand what this feature does, and I'd love to see some examples.

Many thanks,

Joss
