Our guest in podcast number 70 is Maurice Ribble who designed and built the original Camera Axe which is a camera controller for high speed photography. In addition to the Camera Axe, Maurice and his followers have created a number of electronic addon devices that can do everything from capturing the spash of colliding water drops to freezing the bullet fired from a gun.  Maurice also has a video blog as well as tutorials and a forum at - be sure to check it out!
