Yes it is a Dodge. Actually, it is made by Mercedes and was sold through Dodge dealers until Mercedes dropped Dodge as a partner.
It is an Airstream Interstate. 2007. Bought it with plans to travel but, wife was hit with a serious illness that prevented that. Have used it to drive back and forth to work is about it. Only has 20,000 miles on it. Not sure now long I will keep it.

Working for a company that does remarketing for Daimler, I see a lot of Sprinters, but I dont see a lot of Sprinters like that. Nice vehicle!

Make sure the "Hi/>>>" button is turned on, and turn your shutter speed up. It's really that simple. You lose a lot of light, this was full power at F1.8 at 1/6400. The only strobes I've used this technique is with my cheap Promaster/Mettle 300w units. I've heard that these older designs have a longer tail burn that helps when using fast SS.

ha! i figured it was a long burst of light..

so if i were to use my short flash duration with either my elinchrom or profoto's, then i bet i will get banding? still i should give it a try, but the longer the flash duration the better in this case.. :)

thanks Chris

You won't get banding, you'll just get less light output (compared to a slow strobe) as you raise shutter speed.

using your example image of your beautiful daughter, say you had it up all the way to 300watts, and the out put you received.. was in the photo itself..

lets say you dropped your shutter speeds down to nominal sync speeds of 1/200 and fired a shot with the same 300watt setting.. would it still be about the same or way blown out?

so as you approach max shutter speeds of 1/8000 your wattage at full power will diminish..

interesting...
