I remember that video, I love the way you can see it's flight as some spiral around. My question would be how much is the wind causing it to be off target and how much did they wander away from point of aim. Some were very cut up and would have been nice to know if multiple same cut fashion repeated the same flight path style.

I made a version 4. I have radiused and filleted most edges, rounded the front and added a hole at the neck to reduce weight. I reduced the camera step 2 mm and widened the screw slot which should center the camera perfectly. The mount is extremely stiff.







I made a small bed adjustment on my printer and it produced a great print. It still needs some tweaking to produce better cosmetics but there are no issues with the strength of the prints.



I've tested the V3 mount on two scopes and a spotting scope and it has held up fine.

I'm not happy with the video I've produced so far but I haven't had good light and the setups are shoddy as I gain experience. I've test 480 FPS and 1000; VERY grainy so far, and alignment is critical.

More to come.

Testing seems to indicate it needs a hoody.

I'm up to V6 and I'm pretty sure I have it dialed in. I need to make one minor tweak to the camera base, a 2mm rise but I have it shimmed for now and I'm not going to print 10 hours for that.

V6. Rock solid and weighs in at 3.3 ozs.



This was shot in bright sunlight, 1000 FPS at 25 yards. No projectiles, just a system check. A subsonic bullet would cover that distance in 68 milliseconds which should be 68 frames, about 30 @ 480 FPS. Twice that @ 50 yards. Range on Thursday hopefully.

Curious as to resolution at that fps, that's a phenomenal speed.

I've been looking at the Sony RX10 IV but I'm just not that dedicated to photography. These have been the layman's highspeed option for about a decade.
