    Default your view

    Scenario:

    2 photographers, X and Y, who don't know each other
    1 rare creature
    2 different agendas:
    1. X wanna take a shot of the creature with flash due to back lighting
    2. Y wanna wait for the creature to strike its prey and snap the action


    Y tell X not to flash the creature as it might be startled and ran off.

    So how?

    X fires the flash, creature gets startled, Y takes the 'action' photo.

    As for the prey...

    Wait for the prey shot, which will be backlit, and let both photographers shoot. One flashes, one doesn't. Both get good photos assuming good still.

    Hi desmondnwj, well you asked a most interesting question with a most interesting scenario.
    What are you driving at? What kind of answers or what kind of discovery?

    both should do HD videography... if need, extract the image from the video.

    Tell Y to continue waiting while X snaps and leave the scene.
