I make no claim to expertise but at this point in my life I'm happy with this one.  I would trade a klondike bar for a 1Dx that syncs at 1/1000 without using HSS though...

Jim

But a light that throws out any decent amount of power will take longer than 1/1000 sec to do it anyway. The ultra fast quoted flash speeds are at minimum power, normally around 2-4Ws, or 15 to 30 times less than even a speedlite at full power.

Flash and high shutter speeds are a complicated affair, there is no simple solution other than no shutter, even leaf shutters have practical limits of flash exposure around 1/1000-1/1500. The true answer is electronic "shutters", basically no shutters at all, like the P&S's.
The best time to plant a tree is twenty-five years ago. The second best time is today.

I like the way you got light onto your subjects; I haven't figured out how to get shots like that in sunlight.

Jim
I'd probably do better to invest more time and less money.

Thanks Jim!   It's about compromises....i'd rather "shoot to the right" and slightly overexpose the shot to get more light under the hat...i'm ok with some blown areas if the result is that I get a better face.
