thanks :)

I take it to 110 psi because that's what my compressor can manage and I'll be buggered if I pump 2 litres of air manually :D structurally though it could go up to 200 at least.

Here's a blast from the past :) I dusted off this project, my first BBMG, as I was dying to get some high speed footage from an automatic now that I have the means, here it is blasting a cd and case at 420 frames per second :D

Have I mentioned how much I love this camera?

I like the way it's labelled "Target", in case you should get confused as to what you were supposed to be shooting...

It's actually how I mark all defective CDs, it saves me from destroying new ones ;)

Hehe, plastic confetti. It would be interesting to see some footage filmed looking along the barrel of the gun, with a bit of distance from the target (perhaps zoom in to bring things closer) so that you could see the flight path of the stream of BBs.

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

My favourite part is the first burst stitched across the case :D
