OMG! you genius! LOL. Maybe I should have read the manual fully instead of acting like a excited little child playing LEGO without reading the manual. Thank you again, testing the equipment again I've examined the shutter does affect ambient light and aperture affected the strobe. I love movement, so capturing it takes quite of a skill; nonetheless, I have learned A lot from this posting.

Thank you everyone for passing you knowledge to a young Padiwan (dunno if the spelling is correct)

it's spelled "Padawan", oh youngling ;)

Thanks for elaborating on the flash duration issue.


Would you like to buy a vowel?
Go ahead, spin the wheel.

I noticed when I took the picture with the applied settings learned from this post, I was still getting trails of blur on the edges of the subjects feet, hands etc. I tried to use my Ranger RX kit to overpower the sun and still got blurry edges. Here are the settings and equipment i used:

5D Mark II
24-70 f/2.8L
- Shutter 1/200th
- Aperture f/13
- ISO 100
- AI Servo

Ranger RX with A head
Rotalux 37 x 37 softbox
- Subject stood about 6-8ft away from strobe
- Power was almost at max 7.0

I made sure that the ambient light was minimized. Is the problem with my strobes cause it's not capturing all of the subject when the flash is fired?
