The camera shutter is open (until I familiarise myself with setting it up to be triggered by the timer also) & captures what is frozen by the flash.
the water falls 2 feet into a cooking dish of water, maybe 2/3 inch deep
yep seen those too, stay tuned!
Remember the tripping of the shutter is partly mechanical which takes time. It is better to stick to the flash only operation and use the delay function between the sensor and the triggering of the SCR to capture the droplet in different places.
