comment Which cameras can sync at faster than 1/250?
@TREE High speed sync isn't really flash, it's a just a way of turning a flashgun into a continuous lightsource, it doesn't have the ability to overpower ambient the way true sync at above 1/250s does.

It doesn't matter which space you use, but if you sharpen the luminance channel only you don't get colour artifacts.

There's another answer - electronic shutters, which I think is what the questioner is referring to

comment How do I build my own soft-box light for illuminating still or stop-motion scenes?
If you're going the continuous lighting route then it's worth seeing what you're abient light looks like. If you have a single bulb and white walls that will probably give you "broad bright lighting" and soft shadows. Colour accuracy may suffer if you have energy saving bulbs installed so you might want to swap to tungsten for the duration of the project.

comment Is it possible to use the Photoshop CS raw editor for JPG files?
@Greg, I agree this is not a replacement for shooting raw in the first place but it's a useful way to edit pictures from devices that don't support raw, such as camera phones.

comment What is a “diffraction limit”?
yeah longitudinal CA (the purple and green fringes to the text) indicates the focus may be off in the first two images. Plus I would certainly hope the 85 f/1.8 is sharper than that at f/2.8! If you do this again I would focus stopped down with live view.
