Sorry. My interest is currently in research phases. I just started looking for strobes adequate enough to freeze dance movements and jumps in a studio setting (and hopefully won't break the bank as I'm just an amateur at this point).

I've shot a lot of dancers this year. My results are that t.1 durations in the range of 1/1500 to 1/2000 will reliably freeze dancers in mid air (including hair). If they're REALLY flinging their arms or legs around, 1/2000 will result in sharp bodies but just a hint of blur at the finger tips/toes. T.1 durations longer than 1/1000 consistently produced blur no matter what.

I can confirm those numbers are correct!
