There's high-speed photography, and there's high-speed photography...


High speed bullet photography is cool - the precision of catching the bullet flying through a carefully-placed target.

But how about hitting a moving target?  How about hitting a single drop of water?

Dutch photographer Alexander Augusteijn can do it, apparently using normal flashes, but with the timing controlled by computers.

Speaking of high speed photography, here is some high speed video of bullets hitting things as well as things hitting moving bullets. Pretty awesome and shot at 1 million frames per second:
