Re: I did the same sorts of experiments.

Whoa, thanks Jim - this test is even more relevant for us MT24EX owners. The most realistic scenario is no 8, I believe, and it looks like 15 us duration of both flash heads, i.e. 1/67000s, no less. Motion blur at that level? Sounds far fetched to me.

And the shortest duration you measured is only 4us in no 1, which is 1/250000s (!).
