Hi,

I was doing a studio shoot when suddenly, a couple of my shots had this weird vignetting effect.

i tried vertical and horizontally, and it was still there at the same area.
anyone knows the issue?

it resolved itself after a while, but was wondering whats causing it.
I am using a D90.

Either your shutter speed exceeded the x-sync limit or your strobes aren't in sync

reading from your exif, you are using 1/250s, theoretically is safe, but you are using studio strobe with a trigger, it is a commonly known issue such thing will happen, just lower to 1/125s you will be safe.

so far jinbei strobes can't sync at anything more than 1/200 without having issues. u will have lesser issues in the studio than if u were to use it outdoors to minimise ambient.

ps. thanks for the compliment. :)

I suspected it was Serious Play as well.

One of our shooters ran into the same problem when shutter speed hit 1/200 when using the Jinbei Pilots. To be safe we asked him to lower slightly, and the problem went away.
