Okay
So I have a client wanting to do high speed, 700-900fps under existing stadium lighting. I'm concerned about potential flicker issues.
Is there a resolvable shutter speed for that high of frame rate or do I just need to re-rig with flicker free lights?

I have had mixed experience with high frame rates under stadium lighting. Usually they do flicker. With that said, there tend to be so many sources that the flicker is not as noticeable. Obviously if you are seeing the actual light source then the flicker will be visible.

It is also very hit and miss in terms of finding a safe speed. I would expect flicker.
