oh well, the above is almost meaningless until I find the code... I used a flash drive to store it, and I left it at school somewhere : - (but hey, nothing private was on it ^_^
also, it is possible to get results immediately for high speed if instant film is used, and you can apparently get high grade (and yes, I know Polaroid does not make it anymore)... but it is hard to find a moderately priced digital that can respond fast enough.
Ah, the wonders of film! While I don't shoot any of the pricey medium or large format stuff, I prefer the look of my black and white 35mm tri-x film over what my digital can give me. The thing is if I'm shooting my film I want to develop it and print it myself and that takes so much time I rarely do it anymore.

Quoteit is hard to find a moderately priced digital that can respond fast enough.Actually, any Canon camera compatible with CHDK (http://www.chdk.wikia.com) can do 1/60000 shutter speeds (sufficient for high-speed photography) and can be controlled via a quick 5V pulse over usb (which you CAN trigger from an arduino).
interesting... that is fast enough for some of my shots, and it means I can do them in daylight!but on the page it specifies that is the FLASH speed is 1/60,000, and the shutter is around 1/10,000... than means it is NOT fast enough for some of the ones I plan to attempt... but can that takes sequential shots?
