Last week at a VB game... announcement before each game that flash photography is not allowed...

IMAGE: http://loco-photo.com/images/2009-11-10_1291n.jpg

Pretty cool highlight... had to occur in 1/1000" of a second

P.S. This team just won the State Championship an hour ago!

It happens to me occasionally, but not enough for me to stress about one shot here or there. It is kind of funny tho when it does happens... On the bright side you probably ruined his shot as well...;-)a

The OP was shooting ISO 3200 at a shutter speed faster than xsync... ambient... no flash.

It's happened to me a time or two (sorry, didn't save the photos). Aggravating, but not the end of the world.

Once I had another photographer just shoot bursts during a basketball game very frequently and I came away with many overexposed images that day. There were a few series where it was like we had our cameras synced together and 3 images in a row would be ruined.

I think the most I've ever had was 5 different images where that occurred during a basketball game. It's typically a free for all when you're shooting the bride and father dancing during a wedding, especially if you're shooting ambient with a slow shutter. I've got a few shots were it's actually provided some great rim light - can't find em right now though

I delete them immediately, but at Louisville bball games the athletic department uses the gigantic strobes that SI uses, and once or twice a game I'll have a shot ruined by them. The worst part is they always seem to be solid shots if they weren't blown

Of course they're solid shots! The shot was apparently good enough for at least 2 photographers to want to go after it.
