Welcome to, a comprehensive web resource for easy, low cost, do-it-yourself high-speed photography. Since 1996, has provided information and tools to DIYers who want to capture stunning photos of splashes, collisions, and other high-speed events. Our site's resources have been useful to people with a wide range of photographic experience, from students and hobbyists to educators and professional photographers.


We show how easy it is to take high-speed photographs using cost-effective methods. You can use the information on this site and your own resourcefulness to build trigger circuits from scratch, or you can purchase some of our inexpensive kits for the convenience of having all the parts you need in addition to detailed assembly instructions. But whether or not you buy from us, all the information you need is free.
