:D :D :D ten points!

Come to think of it, yeah, look at all the sex toys that go through customs wtihout problems.

Heck, this looks more menacing!

Maybe with some fins... :D

On another note, natas - you have machine tools, a nice big combustion cannon and seemingly loads of space to shoot over... maybe some projectile optimisation would be good for you ;)

You're French, statistically it's likely that you've seen much, MUCH worse :D

Not that it's limited to the French of course, while looking for an appropriate image I found this (NSFW!)

Fantastic!

Not bad, here's what it can do:

Don't forget that faster speed means lower quality, so you might have to compromised and stay at 480 fps especially in low light.

If you don't have one of these already, it will be very useful:

Broad daylight under the sun is probably okay but if the object is in the shadow you may want to get a halogen lamp. I've found that the best trade-of between quality and high frame rate is the 480fps setting but 1000fps and 240fps also have their uses.

If you have problems with the camera going out of focus when you press the record video button, try getting a large object that fills the screen at the focus distance you want and then press the record button. I found that the Casio FC100 has an annoying habit of changing focus when you try and record something; hopefully they fixed the issue with your model.

Familiarize yourself with the camera before taking important video

Yep, good sunlight will give you good results. These were done in direct sunlight without artificial light at 1000 fps for example:

Yep, these days I use 1000 fps mostly for "research and development" footage and 210 fps for "just for show" footage, 420 fps is somewhere in between.
