Testing my new toy.

I used part of my tax refund to buy a new Casio Camera with slow motion video capability. It cost about $180. Extra battery and 15 Gig memory chip brought it closer to $300.

Yesterday was my rocket club's (SMASH) first launch of the year so I decided to test it out. Behind the cut is a launch of an Estes "Golden Snitch". It is taken at 210 frames per second.

I'm glad I took the time to test it. It is a small camera and my hands are oversized so I have difficulty holding it still. Next time I will have to bring a tripod.
