I'll be using a strobe (flash) on an HD shoot. I've seen this in the past but it never seems to work well (strobe duration and shutter angle/shutter speed issues). Any ideas, tips or thoughts you can share with me?

Multple posting or cross posting as it may be called is against the rules of the forum. Not my job to mention this but thought I would take a turn at it.

Studio Flash systems:
Flash duration decreases as you turn the power down on all Strobes. Some brands start out with a pretty short duration compared to others. Profoto and Broncolor both have the shortest flash duration and as you decrease the output the Flash duration gets even shorter. Monoblocs (all in one unit) units have even shorter duration but they are usually not as powerful in output as a Strobe head connected to a power unit.

can't help on shutter angle/speed issues.

On camera Flash:
Nikon and Canon both have pretty sophisticated units out now that may allow you to adjust then to your needs.
