    I recently purchased canons 550ex speedlite and want to use the stoboscopic
    features of the speedlight. For example I would like to capture a golfers
    club at multiple stages during its swing and to capture multiple images of a
    subject walking across the frame for example. My question is, does anyone
    have any info
    they can share or point me to any websites that could help?

    Didn't you get a manual for your 550EX? I am not sure but try or
    this one here this one should give you almost
    all the info you would need for your EOS flashes, execpt from experience!

    Happy New year

    Thanks for your reply Henrik. I have the manual for the 550EX, It tells me
    how to set the settings, but no example on the settings to use (firing
    frequency, flash count, flash output) for what I would like to do. I am
    currently using the EOS30, I was trying to get as much info as possible so I
    wouldn't waste so much film figuring it out.

    Thanks again :)

    Also took a look at the Canon Flash Works book. Excellent examples of flash
    use - a high quality publication. I picked mine up for free, although I
    have a feleling the camera shop was supposed to charge me for it. I must be
    a valued customer ;-)
