Broken Potential by TurtleVVisperer Broken Potential by TurtleVVisperer
Crayon shot with a pellet moving at 512 feet per second.
If you like this, you might like eggs shot with paintballs!

I recently got my high speed stuff out again and have been tinkering with it, trying to get better results. Hopefully some better stuff will come of it soon.

Check out my other high speed stuff on my website!

--------------------------------
Canon 40D + 50mm f/1.8
@ 1 second shutter speed, f/14, ISO 800
2 Strobes used to illuminate the scene quickly:
Strobotac 1531-AB
The quick flash creates an effective exposure of 3/1,000,000 of a second.

nice, which method did u use to capture the moment?
a sound trigger ?

Yup, I used a sound trigger that was tripped when the pellet gun went off. That signal went to an Arduino microcontroller that I programmed to wait 13ms for the pellet to get to the crayon.
