    I like to play with high speed Photography

    Pics of water drops falling , popcorn jumping, ballons bursting

    and hopefully someday the famous bullet through a playing card and that type of thing.

    Thank you Paul

    have been there and built a Passive infrared (body heat & movement) , Laser beam , and sound trigger.

    Used Hiviz's schematics and modified them here and there to suit me better.

I remember a few months ago on this forum (when I was new here) there was a bit of a fad that went around of taking pictures of water droplets as they fell from faucets.
