High Speed Photography with Arduino

Posted: April 26, 2013 by apuparker in Phys II Projects

Working in a dark room, the shutter of my Nikon D5000 was open for 10 seconds. Once the drop of liquid broke the beam of the laser, using the Arduino, the flash was triggered. The image that I captured, although the shutter was open for 10 seconds, is only what was seen for the short period the flash was on.

You don’t necessarily need an Arduino to do high speed photography, but using it allowed me to add in a motion sensor and you can also add any other sensors you’d like.
