High-speed Photographs with an Olympus D-600L

 

photos by Matthew Moore
North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics

 

Note the sharpness of these images below. This requires a flash duration on the order of 1/10,000 second. The Olympus D-600L has no direct adjustment for this. However, an automatic flash such as the one built in to the camera adjusts its duration automatically in response to light reflected from the subject. The brighter the reflected light, the shorter the duration will be.  Moore had placed the camera within a few feet of the balloon. At this close range, the reflected light intensity was high.

The BB has just entered the balloon. The dark spot behind the vertex of the front rip may be the BB. Its appearance at this location is coincidental.
