Very nice review, lots of good comments about both options as a "system" rather than just a single piece of equipment.
Your duration tests with the high RPM spinning disc clearly show that the Einstein has a faster duration than the Elinchroms, as you would expect from the specifications. No surprises there, and it's definitely a torture test that will illustrate the effect of flash duration.
Did you also do any shooting of your normal splash/water droplet photography to compare the two systems? If so, how visible were the effects of motion blur? I'm curious where the threshold is...Show more →
Nope, I did not do the test with real splashes. but I know for sure it won;'t be good: 1/2000 t.5 of shortest flash duration won;t work for fast little drops. it might be able to stop larger and slow pieces of water, but it will be surrounded by little blurred drops anyway.
I've played a lot with Einsteins, and I know 1/2000 at t.1 is not enough.. what to expect from t.5.
