Robert Soderlund: In the last balloon picture, doesn't it take few milliseconds for the sound to reach the flash at a meter or two? How did it fire in time?
I wouldn't know how quickly a balloon explodes, I've never done this, in the pic it's shreds have already contracted so my uneducated guess would be that if sound takes 1/340 to reach the trigger and flash takes 1ms from that to fire, then 1/340+1ms is how long it took for the balloon to reach that state ;)
well it says in the description that flash was triggered by sound and it's duration was 50 microseconds, isn't that 1/20000 s. What is there to speculate? Shrug.
Pat Cullinan Jr: What camera should I buy if I am to view images on a 72-in 4K flat panel, whilst enjoying enough surplus pixels to do some reasonable zooming? My burning desire is to reproduce the experience of a slide show (Kodachrome 64, Nikon F, FTn, F3, N2000, Nikkor lenses, Leica IIIg, Summitar 1.5, Leitz and Zeiss projectors).
I just can't have any more 13x19-in prints in my life.
4K is 8.3 megapixels, so in that regard basically any new camera has that and more.
dad_of_four: Haters gonna hate...I cannot tell whether it is Irony or Hypocrisy that a bunch of hobbyist photographers are idly sitting around saying how awful & decadent this thing is. Meanwhile we all possess camera gear that would feed a third-world family for multiple years. Most of us have cars that exceed the lifetime income of said families. As you read this reply, you are creating an even bigger carbon footprint for yourself.
Recycling is conducted very poorly in your area if you need to specifically drive somewhere to drop off your drink cans. Bringing up aluminium is a really poor example for you here, it's one of the materials that are very energy-economic and actually profitable to recycle.
Rawmeister: OMG. There really are too many mental defectives in the world.So, so Sad.
Please, why don't all you "more money than brains" types stay away from the photography world.
I'm rooting for a massive worldwide ebola pandemic as a much needed attitude adjuster.
hahaha =D Holy assumption... ('88' is a number connected by some people to nazism)

Has the background been "cut out"? I don't know how this was made but it seems likely that the subject was placed on a white surface, and when brightly lit - this is pretty much what you get.
