Ok.....to this very moment, I am trying to figure out what happened..
I am shooting with my 5D, and am doing one of these long exposure shots to burn the ambient light from something specific in the shot...and I am dragging out the shutter to about 1/6th of a second, and am plugged in to my strobes, and it didn't matter how I had my camera configured,...mirror locked up, or not,..self timer on or off,...single shot or continous,..I had my strobes pop twice! Once at the beginning of the exposure and once at the end of it.. Oh,...I even checked the CF's to see if anything was out of wack... I even changed the modefor the curtain sync by 1st or 2nd curtain too...and it still popped twice.. I tried shortening the exposure..and found that it didn't do that after about a 20th of a second,... but,...in my line of work, I am often shooting under 30ths of a second.....usually around 1 second to 1/15ths..and to have this thing pop twice like that is a real pisser....especially like in a situation like I had today... shooting a person who isn't a model, but a regular person who isn't the most photogenic....and having them move slightly in the picture and having this stupid thing make a "double exposure" so to speak..with the flash pops that is,... I ger a "ghosting" look....and I look real stupid in front of the client... $$#@@*&^%$$##!! I swear to god,...nothing ever goes my way!!
So, for those of you who think I am a "Fanboy" of Canon,....I'm not..
Right now,...I'm just a pissed off Canon fan..
