What is/was the sync speed of the 602's? I get 1/200 with my 50D and the 603's.
Yes, you can probably get 1/250th sometimes too but they eventually fall back to 1/200th or less sometimes.IMAGE LINK: http://www.flickr.com …/15168416@N00/4885002992/
The Strato will get 1/250th all the time though.
If you go past the x-sync like this you can see a little more of where they are really at -
The Pixel Soldiers shown are very fast but the Strato are not far behind.
This is best case scenario though the RF-602/3 have no buffer room so they will eventually fall back to around 1/200th to maintain a clean frame.
But the other way to see is cameras with an electronic shutter, the Stratos (and Soldiers) are up around 1/1200th while the RF-602 are around 1/800th and the 603's are falling lower again around 1/600th.
All this means in practical use with a 50D is you will likely start to see banding even at 1/200th at some times.
I'm not saying the 603's are a major problem in any way, just that they have their + and - compared to the 602's when they could have been an upgrade to a number of obvious issues.
Where as the Strato have looked at all the current issues and removed them (while adding more features). Pixel have refined too but they are still more "handle with care" quality.
