I don't think HSS was available for the c5050 back then. But yes, you are correct: HSS coupled with its natural need for stopping down the aperture in sunlit conditions satisfies the DOF requirements.

I've moved on stylistically from that time, though. I wanted to capture macros of objects that had a mixed daytime (diminished ambient) & nighttime (strobes) feel. It created a surreal look, due to the even lighting of sunlight and high dropoff of external strobes. Hard to explain and I don't have the photos available on this workstation.

Ever try shooting a macro at f/4, 1/2500th with external flashes (controlled lighting everywhere )? Doesn't work without an electronic shutter.

Never have. I'm guessing that type of photography is for things like water drops? Why is an electronic shutter necessary? Don't things like the pocket wizards allow HSS photography with mechanical shutters?
