High Speed Photography
Get flash to fully experience Pearltrees
I use the Cognisys StopShot timer, which provides the proper timing, but control needs more than a timer.

I found an internet post recently where another photographer had claimed to have synced his flash at 1/8000 of a second, the problem was, the images that he had uploaded were not compelling. I set out to test his technique, which I was very skeptical of to say the least. His idea was simple, using a rigged flash delay he would “grab” only a portion of the amount of flash output by setting the camera to a very high shutter speed.
High speed photography of milk drops requires a very fast flash to stop the motion up close. Camera shutters and studio lights are not fast enough for this special duty, however camera speedlights used at their low power settings typically are fast enough.
