For the vapour blast you don't need it.
For muzzle blast from firearms, i think I took just one on 1/4000th, and the rest were 1/1000th region. The online shots were on an old dead server so i'll see if i've got them on backup somewhere. But it's just timing rather than fast frame exposure. The DS3 only could do 5 fps from memory... I did use that burst but it wasn't held down, just jabbed when i thought the shot would be taken.
Oooh! Yes, pellet is what I'm after, agree the muzzle blast isn't too much of an issue. Just shooting at 9 fps I'll get 2 or 3 good frames with a nice blast and on powder burners it'll be more like 8 or 9!

Any chance of a borrow?


PS if it works I'll be needing a 'model'. Don't worry, not like my usual stuff so you can keep yer trollies on.
