    My mom took a class at MIT from the guy that basically invented that style of picture. Lots of cool shit.

    First time I've seen that crayon one as well :cool:

    Apparently so is a balloon popping. Very fast.

    I didn't think at the velocity a bullet travels that a balloon would be able to stretch as much as the last one is on the exit, before it ruptured.

    it looks like a handgun bullet, possibly 9mm or 45ACP.... so it's only 800-950ft/sec or so.... I estimate the three ballons to take up 3 feet, so that's just about 4 miliseconds from the time the bullet punctured the orange ballon to when the pictured frame is.

    Gotta take into account that the bullet is hitting water as well, and is slowing down significantly. Still cool as shit to see, though.

    I can never remember how to spell his name correctly, but he truly was a photographic genius. Coming up with a camera that could successfully capture the first few milliseconds of an atomic explosion, in 1945 is incredible. Not to mention all of his other strobe photography work.


    Anything you have that wouldn't be in any of his galleries?

    I think a watermelon is an obvious choice. As would be a tv/monitor.

    I haven't taken any high-speed footage, but I have shot some of those camping propane cans and it's lame.

    They don't do much without a flame, either a candle on the side or a tracer.

    Stupid fucking kids, but it shows how big of a fireball one of those little tanks can do: http://youtube.com/watch?v=yKTrKY_hDMo
