    Hello everyone, it's been a while since I posted here, but I need your help. I purchased a new digital camera with "hgh speed" capabilities. I'm not talking Mythbusters 1,000,000 frames per second, but very impressive for a $150 camera. I'm homing to get some neat video at the range, but need some Ideas. once I get this eye candy, it will be posted to youtube to share with all. The rules are simple....... Nothing that will get my range membership pulled. this means nothing hazardous, and nothing permanent.

    The following videos were taken at the range last weekend, and as far as I'm concerned, are pretty darned impressive fro a cheapo camera. I'm looking to add a whole bunch more like this to my collection. So far the majority of people offering suggestions are recommending produce hit with high velocity varmint loads, so that is in the works.

    Thanks in advance for your ideas!

    When you said "High Speed" I thought you meant "High Speed Low Drag", haha.

    These are very cool shots.

    If you're allowed to draw then fire at your range, try a Tueller drill while the slow-mo shows the target advancing.

    It might not look great without a really fast camera, but aiming a high-speed camera at a glass mirror and shooting the mirror looks pretty neat. It usually requires a tarp, and having your camera down range though...

    Nice video! How about a 12 gauge load of buckshot hitting a gallon of milk?

    I'm not sure how to keep your camera dry and safely get close enough. You may need to make a box with a window and a remote button pusher.

    Here are some I did with my Casio EX FS-20 at 1000 frames/sec.

    I like how the airsoft recoil points the muzzle down because the slide momentum is so much greater than the plastic pellet.

    I need to do some of my Chiappwa 1911-22 to see why it stovepipes a couple of times per magazine. Weather has been awful lately, too muddy where I shoot from all the rain :(

    JohnBT, do you have any idea on the durability of those video glasses? I'm looking for a high quality/durable but small and wearable video recorder to come with to Afghanistan. But I don't wanna get some junky "back of Boys Life magazine ad" crap and have it fall apart on me while over.

    Maybe film a close up of your trigger pull?

    That would be practical.

    Shoot various fruits on high speed film with different calibers. Oranges, grapefruit, tomatoes, cantelope, watermelon, etc..

    No sir, I certainly don't. The owner of Afton Arms seems to be a great guy and I bet he would know. He works from home I believe so reaching him shouldn't be too hard.

    I bought a Sig X-5 Tactical from Afton Arms at a gun show. I haven't gotten by his house yet to visit, but he lives about 100 miles away west of me.

    Hmmm, I wonder what would happen to a block of dry ice hit by a fast projectile... Would the ball heat up enough to convert the 'wound channel' to gas?

    The camera is a Casio Elixim EX-FS10. I think it was $160 after shipping from one of the Big Box stores website. It's a great deal, but it's terrible in low light conditions, for both pictures and videos. Small price to pay though......

    3rded on the camera request. Samsung video cameras can do 200fps at a decent resolution, but faster than that and the resolution gets too low to see anything.

    Man that is awesome....I would probably saying something downrange as well. Maybe even shoot a steel target and catch the bullet fragment/implode if it'll do it....The apple exploding stuff has been done a million times but, use your imagination :) Can't wait to see more vids. I love slow mo stuff.

    Another nice thing about the camera is that you can get some pretty clear images by stopping the video frame by frame and saving a screen shot. For example....
