Trailing Curtain Sync discharges the flash immediately before the shutter 
curtain closes. When shooting moving objects with a slow shutter speed, 
Trailing Curtain Sync and Slow-speed Sync produce different effects 
depending on when the flash is discharged.
For example, when shooting a moving car with Trailing Curtain Sync, 
trailing light is captured while the shutter is open and the flash captures the 
car immediately before the shutter is closed. Therefore, the picture will 
include a sharp, well-lit car with trailing light behind it.
