SB800 traces

These were taken with the same setup as yesterday, except I've increased the photo-transistor loading to square up the falling edges a bit.

As before, Chan. 1 and 2 are the lower-edge and upper-edge phototransistors and chan. 3 is the SB800 flash pulse. Added is chan. 4 which is the PC sync signal. When using the SB800, there is a 10us delay from the PC sync start edge to the flash trigger pulse. Time base is again 1ms/div, for 10ms across the full screen width.
