I know what image latency looks like. I'm not an expert. But the
footage I saw looked _nothing_ like image latency. The entire
rod's wing moved, both leading and trailing edge. There was no
fading out of a streaky 'tail.'

If someone can, could footage of bugs be posted where the result
looks like sinusoidal extended wings? Or have experts already
done this to show the world that rods are actually ordinary

A demo with a film camera and camcorder side by side would be
welcome, as it would settle the question once and for all. I've
had occasional bugs on sunny days flit past my camcorder, and
they sure didn't look anything like the rod footage I've seen.
