    Ti - excellent - thanks a lot for those. I have archived quite a lot of hi-speed camera pics but these are some fresh material.

    Those look amazing, I can't believe they are full speed bullets!! Would a run of the mill digital camera capture a bullet that well? Surely those are light loads. I just can't believe it's full speed!!!!

    Hank - there are IIRC two main methods for high speed work.

    One is a very fast frame rate camera, film or dig' - running at some crazy speed - one frame could be snagged from one of those, possibly.

    Other way tho is, and this is done in a lab virtually, like other way - the camera is set up on tripod, using a ''B'' setting - shutter open. The actuation is thru sound usually and then the ''box of tricks'' fires a strobe/flash - with duration of around 1/10,000 sec. By adjusting the delay from trigger, the flash can be made to fire +/- a millisecond or so either way.

    Thus - if bullet just ''stopped'' in front of a card, you could add another msec to allow it to progress a tad more before flash captures it.

    Not so sure the hi intensity xenon discharge tubes can't manage a millionth of a second these days.

    Nope they clearly state that no Muppets were hurt and that Beaker only suffered a near miss.

    I guess the shooter just couldn't bring themselves to shoot old Beaker.

    I think this guy's wife took everything away from him, because he kept shooting everything. Now all he gets is other people's business cards, and playing cards.
