"Flash of confusion"



          

Just when I thought I had the N80 figured out I read all the threads regarding Slow Sync, Rear Sync, 1/60 to 1/125, etc.

Once I buy a Speedlight, it seems I have more to learn!

Can a N80 owner freeze the action of say a light bulb breaking with the built in flash? I do understand the dark room and using the flash as the only source of light. How does one precisely coordinate the shutter release (and flash) with whatever action is to be stopped?

Always learning,

Doug

Yep! But even w/o it you can take fine pictures...

Hmm.. Nope!

In dark (totaly black) room you can let shutter be open all time! AND then you connect your (external) flash to IR-sensor what shoot the flash when bullet hits the light-bulb...

Just curious, what would the IR sensor sense?

I have seen a Kodak book talk about using a sound sensor to trigger the flash once a gun shot was fired to break the light bulb.

Film don't "see" IR.

Why not... Sensor must be near gun because sound is slower than bullet...
