I just finished up a project, a couple of days ago, a homemade circuit that triggers a flash off a microphone. I have yet to take any shots with it. I have already designed the circuit for basically the same thing using a phototransistor for a trigger.

The microphone trigger cost me about $20 to build.

Post them?

I just saw an episode of Wired Science that demonstrated how to do this using a microphone as a trigger (like in the POTN link above). I think this method may be a little simpler.

High speed photography, water drops, infrared beam camera triggering

Please check some of my work. It takes some time to setup but it is enjoyable.

To trigger the pictures, I used an infra-red slot sensor for the first picture and a laser pointer with a photo transistor for the second picture.

And 2 more that I wanted to show. What I used was the inbuilt flash and table top lamp. Would have been nice to have got more light but I tried this so spontaniously. Also I only used manual shooting as I dont have remote button yet nor any triggering devices. Just had to set up the droplet paper cup to proper distance to "sync" with my reflex (Paper cup on another stand with needle hole). Any feedback would be appreciated as I just started digging into photography :o

Nice pics! Perhaps a bit more depth and/or zoom on the water (point of interest)? I really have to try this technique :)

wow this is awesome!
instead of rigging up a timer, which is awesome, why don't you just shoot in bursts?
I'm going to give it a try when I finish making my makeshift lightbox.
