"Here’s another weekend project that really helps keep camera steady when using large Tele Lenses Handheld. This specific project is for Canon 350d & 400d, but a simple change of the end plug will make it work with any camera that can be operated via a trigger jack."

"A few day ago we featured the EZ-Steady as a smart camera stabilizer. If you follow the blog, you know that there are plenty of DIY versions for similar stabilizers, none of which are as beautiful though, as the DIY Camera Stabilizer from Pixel Artwork."

Sometimes the most amazing things happen when you leave your shutter open for a long duration. Especially if you do it in the rain, while pointing a 200 mW Laser across it.

High Speed Primer - Low Cost Set-up -thanks before sharing

High Speed Primer - Low Cost Set-up -thanks before sharing | "Cameras, Camcorders, Pictures, HDR, Gadgets, Films, Movies, Landscapes" | Scoop.it

"On our last post we saw what high speed triggers are available, on this post we will build our first trigger and and take the very first high speed photo.

I started doing high-speed photography after being wowed by images I saw on the Filckr. Images made by hobbyists like me. As a very experimental (purely for fun) activity, I wasn't about to commit large amounts of money to it."

Your First High Speed Photography Accessory - A Contact Trigger

Your First High Speed Photography Accessory - A Contact Trigger | "Cameras, Camcorders, Pictures, HDR, Gadgets, Films, Movies, Landscapes" | Scoop.it

"High Speed Photography may seem intimidating with all the high end Arduino Triggers and crazy setups that are going around.

If you just want to have a quick stub at high speed photography, your best chance is probably selecting a subject that is easy to shoot (pun intended) in the dark, and light it using a strobe. "How will the strobe know when to pop?" you ask. Easy, using a contact sensor. Such subjects include thing that you can blow up relatively slowly using an arrow or a slow moving pellet, like balloon, eggs and Christmas ornaments.

A contact sensor is one of the most primitive and easy to build high speed photography sensors and is basically build from two conductive surfaces each connected to one of the strobes contacts. When those two surfaces meet they short the circuit and pop the flash.

This is how the picture in the top of the post (by Henrik Vento) was taken, an arrow hits a contact trigger after passing through the egg and a burst of light is made.

The nice thing about contact trigger is that is very (very) easy to build (about 10 minutes of work and 2 pennies worth of equipment. That is including the two pennies you are going to use as materials."

"The Lastolite Hilite is a really neat, light weight, and portable high key background that can double as a softbox. 


...I was intrigued by the simplicity of it and the many ways it could be used for still photography and video work. (Look here to see some nifty example videos of the Hilite and high key backgrounds.) I set out to make a DIY version and not break the bank in the process."
