    What a complete load of bullshit. For starters; I've spent a total of
    about 20 years in the electronics industry (both design & service), &
    I've never heard of any such effect, & I'm very familiar with weird
    quirks in capacitors - particularly high voltage electrolytics, which
    are the kind used in flashguns.
    Secondly: if such an effect existed, it'd affect only the diameter of
    the can - it wouldn't be directional, thus it wouldn't move the flashgun
    in any direction.
    Thirdly: If such an effect existed, it'd eventually tear the capacitor
    out of the PCB or snap the leads off the cap - that doesn't happen.

    PS: Nice try at screwing up the followups to prevent anyone from
    debunking your bullshit. ;^)

    Thanks for proving to all the world that you know nothing about
    electronics.

    BTW; I own two flashguns that I use frequently, & have never seen this
    imaginary effect.
    It's hilarious that you think you can trick people into posting to a
    non-existent group, little troll. ;^)

    The 'click' comes from thermal expansion of the xenon gas in the flash
    tube when it ionises. It's not enough to move a DSLR body, nor is it
    related in any way to "physical compression" or any other action by the
    main capacitor - contrary to what our idiot P&S troll claims. He might
    as well claim that nearby crickets chirping are enough to blur a DSLR
    exposure - it'd make about as much sense.

    Too Funny! Guest

    Just like you believe that the slapping "click" of the shutter and the
    slapping "click" of the mirror doesn't either.

    Trip that shutter with a ball-peen hammer while you're at it.

    LOL!!!!!!!!

    If he's imagining it, then so too am I. I've always assumed it was due
    to the release of the dielectric stress in the capacitor.

    Tell us again about how the electrolytic capacitor in a flash is
    'compressed' when the flash fires - it's hilarious. ;^)

    (Damn, I should xposted this thread to one of the electronics newsgroups
    - the folks there would've gotten a huge laugh out of it.)

    Nope. Electrolytic capacitors don't do that. The 'click' is from the
    expansion of the xenon gas in the flash tube. The amount of expansion is
    *tiny*, but you can hear it because it happens so fast.
