    Hi,

    I'm in the market for a consumer-level digital camera with a continuous flash. Are there any will alternate flash / no-flash strobe-effect like pictures.

    I'm not looking for top-of-the-line or anything, just something reasonable with a strobe-effect flash (if such a thing exists, I don't know).

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    What effect are you trying to get...what final result are you looking for?

    I don't know of any consumer level digital cameras that can continuously 'strobe' the flash. I do know that some of Canon's top end flash units (580EX & 430EX)...have a feature called high speed sync...which makes the flash act like a strobe light...but this feature is for shooting with a higher shutter speed (usually outdoors in bright light).

    The Nikon SB800 has a strobe or as they call it a repeating flash feature.

    I think he's looking to make videos with a consumer camera. I would be virtually certain that none of them would do what he wants.

    This is exactly what I am looking for. Now that I know the keyword is "strobe flash", I get a lot more relevant information to what I am looking for.

    Thanks :)
