I've played with it, had kids waving their arms but no pictures worth posting. At least I'll know how to use it should the occasion arise. Using Manual mode, shutter between 1/2 and 1/8. Repeating flash 1/8 power 3-5 flashes at 20-40 flashes per second. Guess I'm easily amused.

It's no problem to get both background and moving arm properly exposed without blowing out one or the other and fully stopping motion on the moving object. Now to find the perfect object.
