Make Podcast: High Speed Photography – Weekend Projects

Ever want to freeze a rose in liquid nitrogen and then smash it and catch the photograph of the rose just as it begins to shatter? Watch this video podcast to learn how!

If you get inspired to make amazingly cool photographs, go get the Make: flash controller kit, and then upload your photos to the Make: high-speed photography pool!

Click here to get the video (MP4) delivered automatically with iTunes. This video will play on PC/Mac/Linux/PSPs and iPod video devices. Also for your viewing pleasure – HD, 3gp, 3g2, and Blip.

Phillip also made a podcast about the kit a while back when it came out. Check it out here.

Thanks to Divide, Choong, 3ric, Pablos, Pablos’ Dad, Jennifer, Melvin, Phillip, Adam and the other folks who helped shoot high-speed photographs. Making photographs with the flash kit is a project best done with friends!

    High speed photo is really cool, but does anyone have any instructions on how to make high speed video?…you know “Mythbusters style”. Somewhere 500 – 1000 frames per second.

    Have a nice weekend!

    Hi Richard. We’ve got some information on CreateDigitalMotion. Unfortunately there’s no cheap way of capturing seriously slow motion/high speed video. However you may be surprised at how cheaply you can hire high speed cameras if you have a particular requirement.

    The SnapShotII strobe light used in this video can be modified to turn it in to a faster flash. This mod also helps the flash turn off faster, so there is less motion blur on the trailing edge of a projectile. See Speed up the SnapShotII Strobe Light for details.
