I was shooting in the studio last night and noticed a black band (3mm) along the right side of the frame, abviously the curtain shot at ISO 200, 1/200th f8 on manual. I freaked.

I lowered the shutter speed to 1/160 ND 1/125TH it went away.

Any one seen this?

I've heard more than once that a remote sync takes 1/3 of a stop; so 1/160 in the case of 5D3 is expected.
