Very cool! I have fond memories of bursting water-filled balloons in the name of photography, although only with a normal flash to freeze the action...

You can imagine the precision on the synchronisation to get the pellet really deforming the balloon without actually bursting it :shock: :shock:

Every one came out fine - no wasted shots at all :D But not all shots taken shown here or on my Flickr site.

Do you happen to know how "fast" current flashes are(SB-600, 430EXII and the like)? I'm guessing it must be around 1/10.000th of a second?

Depends entirely on the power setting. At full power might be as slow as 1/1,000th second, at 1/32 power might be as fast as 1/20,000th second or even a bit faster. Trouble is you only have a couple of Joules of light to play with at 1/32 power - whereas with these specialist units you have 150 Joules at 1/20,000th second to work with.
