After a little fine-tuning, I’m achieving HyperSynch shutter speeds all the way up to 1/8000th of a second with NO banding (there is some slight graduation that begins around 1/1200th, but I’m confident that I can recover it all in post).
I did a fair bit of pre-purchase research and NONE of it answered my specific questions (including extensive back & forth with PocketWizard’s pre-sales technical support) – I was actually only expecting to get 1/500th When I first started playing with it. I even had banding on the “recommended” settings at 1/500th, but with persistence, tweaking & experimenting – I got ‘er all figured out!

THIS. CHANGES. EVERYTHING.
