Do you just need to see that a flash appeared on the camera unit itself? An ultra bright LED built into it might be a solution since it can be made to operate for as long as you want. Or, can a flash that you do catch, be copied and inserted in post? Or maybe open your shutter angle?

If your budget and vision permits it, perhaps try a higher frame rate.
I know that if you are shooting film an to dying to catch a flash a good way to tell if you got it is if you don't see it in the veiwfinder when you are shooting. If you do see the flash in the veiwfinder youdidnt capture it reason being is because the mirror on the shutter is reflecting 20% of your image if you see the flash it. Means the mirror caught the flash not your emulsion. Let me know if that didn't make sense ha
