Bullet Photography - The Cheaper Version
About three weeks ago we featured a comprehensive tutorial for doing high speed bullet photography.
In that post, Maurice Ribble explained how to use a $195 camera Axe to literally freeze a bullet in mid air (or in mid egg, or in mid cantaloupe...).
Photographer DestinWS came up with a youtube video that explains how to achieve a similar effect (thought less accurate) with a Hiviz kit for $20. While the Hiviz kit does not provide some of the more advanced features of the Camera Axe, it is a great and cheap way to enter the world of High Speed Photography. Video tut after the jump
PS - if you are worried about getting the lights off in the right time, check out Matt Richardson's video and circuitry for a smart camera / light / flash using an Arduino kit.
