it is short enough to illuminate the only one frame, isn't it? yes or no?


If indeed the strobe really is that short of a duration, then the FRAME is being assembled line by line as the strobe happens to fall somewhere in the interval while this is happening.

In fact, rapid pulsing of light with a known pulse duration is one method by which people measure readout times.  CineD uses a 300 Hz strobe for their lab tests

(Yes, Jim Kasson uses a classic analog oscilloscope for his tests, but not many people still have one of those lying around!)
