    Stop motion photography "how to"

    Since I've had quite a few questions on my high speed photography I decided to do a blog on it here

    An excellent tutorial Desmond.

    Well worth the read for anyone wanting to experiment -- and at a reasonably affordable price.

    Extremely good, just ordered the relay kit, now I have to find my soldering iron. I have been trying to think of a way to trigger the flash at an animal passes a set point so this has given me the answer, thanks

    Just make sure of your solder joints !
    I assume you are talking about my motion sensor remote hack ! ?

    Looks like a new version of the sound relay kit.

    A great write-up Desmond. Here's my Scrooge version:
    A few dollars worth of components, a bit of vero board (and some boredom during a lunchbreak):


    it's a modified version of this schematic






    I've been meaning to revisit this experiment for a while now, just haven't gotten back to it yet. Unfortunately the fastest I can go with any of my flashes is 1/64 (1/25000th sec on the SB600)
    These were shot with a Nikon D50 and an old Nissin PZ400 flash on 1/64
    Might have to pull out the rifle and give it a proper go...

    That version has been up there for a while - it's just that the one I use was on the shelf when I went in .

    Looks like it reacts pretty quickly judging by the balloon shot , well done !

    Desmond, I found the same kit you used online, just wondering what you used to power it? Did you use the supplied microphone?
    Cheers, Adam.

    I used one of those 12 volt 'security' batteries , with two small push-on terminals .
    I used the supplied mic since it was a huge difference in resistance to a 'normal' mic
    so I didn't want to introduce any complications .
    It's best to have the mic sticking out on an extended piece of wire because if you have the supplied mechanical relay in it can sometimes trigger itself when it switches off and detects its own noise .

    Simply stunning work, had read this sort of thing before....but didn't believe it, but I do now!
    Richard
    I've been wrong before!! Happy to have constructive criticism though.Gear used Canon 50D, 7D & 5DMkII plus expensive things hanging off their fronts and of course a "nifty fifty".

    Many many thanks for this. I've been trying to figure out a way to take exactly some of these sorts of photos for a while now. Much easier then i suspected, but then i guess the best solution is often the simplest.

    now to find a cheap flash to rip apart...
    Please feel free to rework my photos, but give me step-by-step instructions on what you did, so I can learn

    CC is always welcome and appreciated

    There are a lot of cheap old flashes out there - but just read my blog on 'using an older flash ' first
