Welcome to podcast number 118 which is a continuation of podcast 113.  Fred and Jim use the Camera Axe and Projectile module to trigger a flash from a pellet gun and shoot some more crackers, balloons and even potatoes! In addition, they use a Sony NEX-5 in addition to a Canon 5D III to prove the camera isn't that important in high speed photography,  The light comes from a single 580 MKII flash triggered by the Camera Axe.  The flash is dialed down to a factor of 1/128 in order to produce a flash around 20,000 of a second.  The results can be amazing!
