    well yeah obviously because the sensor keeps recording even after the event has happened..

    but you can minimise the translucency by using a nice powerful flash and keeping the shutter speed as short as possible afterwards is what i'm trying to say..

    it is not very difficult to understand.

    As long the background is show up 0,0,0, the moving subject will not be translucent.

    ) A flash that could dwarf the light from the sun. It's good to see the engineer mind at work.
