    Fascinating pictures but where can I find the details of cameras
    used etc.?

    Those are some pretty cool photos. Of course Harold Edgerton did this
    stuff in the 30's, 40's and 50's after he invented the strobe...

    Hello, Karl:

    Very clever Nebraskan, that Harold Edgerton (1903-1990) was. <g>

    Harold "Papa Flash" Edgerton also did full-speed stuff, ie rifle
    ammo. According to the subject website, they were using stuff that
    was going only 1200fps...just barely supersonic, instead of Mach 2.5 -
    3. To freeze motion on the latter, you need roughly 4x more
    illuminating strobe power.

    Not only that, he did a neat series of atomic bomb detonations in the
    early 50s. (Or at least it was done with his equipment; a thing called a
    "Rapatronic" camera, with a non-mechanical, polarization-based shutter.)

    Also, the actual Flickr page for the OP's stroboscopic photos (instead
    of the blog they were mentioned on) is here:

    Does seem to be some somewhat inadvisable gun-safety stuff going on
    there, but neat nonetheless...

    The ones done with a sledgehammer shouldn't be missed either:
