I managed to break the LCD on my HP r717 digital camera a while back, but couldn't find anything that excited me as a replacement, so have been doing without and borrowing my son's camera from time to time. That changed recently... my new camera is a Casio High Speed EXILIM model EX-FC100BK.

I've never been able to get the timing right to take photos of our rockets leaving the launch rails. I manage to get passable videos from time to time, and a lot of pictures of smoke trails... but WOW, the ability to take a burst of high-resolution still photos at a fast frame rate (some of which are even before the shutter release gets fully pressed!) completely and totally rocks my world!

I just put a few of the best frames I captured at Saturday's launch up on Flickr. Enjoy!
