    Some great high-speed photography of .22LR bullets cutting playing cards, business cards, and near-missing Beaker the Muppet.

    I cannot take credit for them, much as I'd like to. Amazingly enough, one of my anti-gun friends sent me this link -- she thought it was a very interesting thing, even though bullets were flying. I may convert her yet! :)

    Nice, they need to make some more. One I would like to see is a shotgun wad releasing the shot, or something to that effect.

    Mmm Nikon D100 camera body...if I could only afford one of those, I could make use of these Nikkor lenses I have sitting around for my N60 SLR and having no access to a darkroom.

    Oh, right, guns! Neat shots! :D

    It looks like the .22LR in some of the images are already deflecting after impact with the business/playing cards.

    PS Edgerton invented the modern strobe light taking pics of bullets was something he was famous for, along with recon photography.

    It's painful to see that many stuck pixels in such an expensive camera. :(

    By the way, you can change the 2005 at the end of the URL to 2002, 2003 and 2004 for more pictures.

    Could've probably been done with a less expensive camera. I think it's the flash unit that is the important part of doing high speed shots like those.

    Besides the stuck pixels, the sensor is covered in dust (all the faint, black circles). Digital ain't everything.

    My D-100 body paid for itself in six months of not paying for film and processing—and that's at the rate I was shooting, not the much greater rate I'm shooting now.
