    Default how 2nd curtain in Canon 600d works

    Hi,

    i saw this "2nd curtain" blah blah thing setting under the built in flash settings.

    i found from google, saying that this is something related to Slow sync?

    anyone can explain this in a simpler manner?

    thanks.

    Go ahead with Google. Don't just stop with the first hit. It helps to have a look how the shutter actually works, ponder about 'curtain' in this context.

    simple way to put it: have you watched Psycho?

    if, the lady is showering at the right of the shower stall, and the killer pulls the curtain open from the left, will he see her at the beginning or end of the curtain opening?

    and if the curtain is opened from the right side where the lady is, will the killer see her at the beginning or the end of the curtain opening?

    wah lau eh... like not simple leh... make me more only




    edit: once the killer sees the lady, he will stop opening the curtain. So he always sees her at the end of the opening...
