Tools of High-Speed Flash Photography
There are several different ways of capturing high-speed images, including single- and multi-burst flash, high-speed motion picture cameras, rotating prism cameras, and streak cameras. The tools described here all fall within the categories of single- and multi-burst flash. That's because this is the simplest and least expensive way to do high-speed photography. We want to make it as easy as possible for people to get started taking high-speed photos.
