Ecay,
the blur reduction setting is in the SERVICE MENU. The service menu is: Power off, hold button #4 for 5 seconds, power on while holding button #4, then release.

Then press button 4 to enter the service menu.

The factory menu is buttons #3 and #4 held down. and then button #5 to enter.

They are very close but not identical....

Generally speaking:
BenQ/Zowie DyAc -- official strobe mode enabled via main menus, usually is brighter (with voltage-boosting electronics).
BenQ/Zowie Blur Reduction -- unofficial strobe mode enabled by Service Menu. Not as bright.
