take pictures from anything you can sense or detect:
You don’t need to modify your camera or flash for this.
It’s compatible with the old High Voltage flashes and the new TTL ones.
Why I did this project?
A friend of me who's really passionate about photography showed me some high speed photography examples. And how expensive the equipment you need is.
I said there must be a DIY solution for that and I started tinkering.
We've done some experiments and you can see the results in the pictures below.

What I would do with the zing
If I win the zing laser cutter then my lab is complete, and will I be able to go crazy.
I'll make: robots, enclosures, front panels, puzzles, build kits, moose heads, etch some cool things
I've been waiting a long time to make this instructable so I could join the zing contest and here I'm
Step 1: Laser Trigger (Light barrier) Sensor
-the sensor (this step)
-Laser itself (next step)
See the included pictures for the circuits
- a phototransistor / photodiode
- just a resistor like 10k
Step 2: Laser driver
R = 1.25V / Laser Current in A
- A led laser diode (ebay)
- 1 x Resistor
