English term or phrase: Remote repeating
A mode in which the master flash and remote flash units in up to six groups fire in repeating flash mode.
"Repeating flash" ist "Stroboskopblitz", aber wie übersetzt man "Remote repeating"? Remote bezieht sich wohl auf die Remote flash units (Slave-Blitzgeräte), aber mir fällt keine treffende Übersetzung ein. Kann jemand helfen?

Dear Asker:

This is where things begin to get complicated!

Stroboskopblitzen/repeat flash/strobe flash

all mean that each of a group of flash units (here, one master and six slaves) deliver a continuous sequence of flashes of equal duration when triggered - for instance, to stop the motion of a subject at various phases in one frame. This would be pretty useless unless they are perfectly synchronised

If this can be remotely controlled from the master flash unit (with photocells or by radio), it is called remote strobe control or remote flash control/Blitzfernsteuerung

If the slave units can be fired sequentially (with a delay in x milliseconds from one to the next) this is sequential strobe control.

sequenzielle Blitzfernauslösung/sequenzielle Fernauslösung oder sequenzielle Blitzsteuerung

Which would make more sense for capturing motion phase in one frame.

If all slaves are to fire simultaneously at precise the same instant as the master, this is synchronised remote control.

Ich werde letztendlich "Stroboskopmodus mit Fernauslösung" schreiben, damit der Glossarbegriff enthalten ist. Danke für die Hilfe!

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you very much. Is "sequenzielle Blitzauslösung" the same as "Stroboskopblitz"? Because this term is fixed for "repeating (flash)" in the company's glossary. I am not sure if this is the same thing.

Asker: Thank you very much again. I was wondering whether master/slaves would be fired sequentially or simultanously in repeated flash mode. But I guess this is not 100% clear from the definition. I might query this now. Thank you very much for your explanation!
