High Speed Photography

Picture of High Speed Photography
With this device you’ll be able to:
take pictures from anything you can sense or detect:
- movement
- sound
- …
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.

We've done some experiments and you can see the results in the pictures below.

  • LM317
  • 1 x Resistor
or you can skip the driver and just use a resistor placed in series with the laser diode
Those pictures are AMAZING :O !!!!!!!!!!!!
