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?

Yes... I've seen it.  I have been using Cactus 4's on my Einsteins and get 1/160.  Apparently the PC Buff, Pocket Wizard triggers/receivers etc get 1/200.  My 7D gets 1/200 instead of 1/250 with the same cheap triggers.

What are you using?
