Hi,

I have been reading about strobe effects and second curtain effects of flash units. I take a lot of nightclub shots and these effects would be great. Does anybody know of a unit that I may be able to use with my Fuji S602 Zoom? If not a good website would be useful.

Thanks in advance,

Dom

Strobe effect usuallyare available withdedicated flash (I don't know any generic flash offering this mode)

But if you have a (dedicated) flash that has this feature (for example the Nikon SB800), you may try setting the flash to that mode, and choose an appropriate shutter speed on the camera (on manual), you need the shutter open during the strobing flash bursts.

Since there is no 2 way communication between flash and camera, this is an trial and error process.

Second curtain effect can be possible only with camera offering that mode of sync (I don't beleive your camera's slow sync mode is rear curtain, but I am not sure).

If the camera has this mode, any generic flash will do.
The shutter opens ........... sync the flash burts, and shutter close.

I used to have a Fuji Finepix S602 but I sold it.

I bought a Sunpak 383 zoom (about $60 from BH Photo Video) and it worked
fine for the S602.

Probably the right flash for that level of camera.

PS: The built-in flash is pretty good out to 20 feet. The Sunpak will get you out to
about 60 feet max.

Hi guys,

Thanks. I actually forgot about this post..! (oops)... so I have upgraded to a 350D/Rebel XT anyhow... and that has the second curtain... now just need to work on the strobing effect!

Thanks again,

Dom
