D300s not synching at 250 sec with Alien Bees
May 15, 2011

Hello -

I'm having trouble getting my Nikon 300s to synch at 250 sec when paired with my Alein Bee 800 strobes... I am firing them via Calumet radio trigger. When I set the camer on M, and set the shutter to 250, I get a dark band across the top of the image. When I slow the shutter to 125, the image looks great.

Is this an issue with the Alien Bee discharge time not being fast enough?

Anyone out there ever experience anything similar?

Thanks much.

Vince B.
