  1. Ahem, I was kidding…

    Try it for yourself and you’ll know why they went through “all that trouble”

  3. @koj1 One thing to be aware of is that on some flashes (like mine) there is a spring loaded pin on both sides of the hot shoe mount and only one of them connects to the flash trigger. I wasted a lot of time before I found this out!

  4. @koj1 One thing to be aware of is that on some flashes (like mine) there is a spring loaded pin on both sides of the hot shoe mount and only one of them connects to the flash trigger. I wasted a lot of time before I found this out! Also some flashes with multiple pins can still be triggered by shorting the centre pin to one of the side pins.

  5. yeah, in theory it is, trust me its easier this way 🙂 Or else people wouldnt be using this system

  6. I don’t know why you went to all that trouble. All you have to do is have someone fire the flash at the same time as the ballon bursts. Easy!

  7. that will be the reason why they take the image in the darkness

  8. Ingenious !!!

  9. Genious!! :)

  10. Nice idea… love It :)

    Great to see people experimenting with this stuff. Liked the concept, could have other applications 🙂

  12. pretty interesting

    you can remote trigger the flashes(and the shutter)
    same time when your shooting the gun 😛

    i cant thank you enough
    seriously (L)X

  17. Very cool.

  18. Cool thanks!

  19. Please forgive me if I’m missing part of the above explanation but, there are Auto Non-dedicated flashes. These have an “Eye” in the front of the flash that automatically adjusts flash output in relation to a specific F-stop depending on ASA. And yes, there are the older, cheaper versions that simply have one power output. Cheers.

  20. Really cool video!

  21. I hope my cambag is big enough to carry such a weapon, ahah.

    Such a nice trick.

    they can be triggerd… i completed the circuit with a money clip. this is with the Nikon SB-900 one of the most advanced and new flashes..

  23. A non dedicated flash is a flash that doesn’t adjust it’s power automatically based on the camera’s settings. It’s basically a cheap flash with only manual controls (the one I use you can’t even control to power output…it’s full power or nothing). Dedicated flashes (Canon, Nikon, etc.) have a more complicate triggering system that can’t simply be triggered with aluminum foil and wires.

    wait.. what do you mean by non dedicated flash?

  25. The camera is anything but high speed. I just left the shutter open for a second. I set the timer, listened for the shutter to open, shot the balloon and my brother triggered the lights. By shooting at night in a dark area, there wasn’t enough ambient light to expose anything with a one second shutter speed..the lights were the only thing exposing the image.
