    Default Sound-activated Flash Trigger

    Anyone knows where to buy a nice sound-activated flash trigger for high speed photography?
    Must be in Singapore, and no eBay or Amazon.

    Thanks lots~

    Edit: by the way what's the difference between what a motion trigger (laser?) and a sound trigger captures?

    An ignorant question, isn't light faster than sound for high speed purpose?

    there isnt one as far as i know but if you know digital electronics and handy with soldering iron, quite a simple job to create a trigger be it sound based or whatever.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.

    I have no idea why you're thinking in such a direction. Both with the laser and sound.
    Even if they were possible, it'll be highly complicated devices in terms of filtering out unwanted sources.
    Does anyone smell a troll?

    have you calculated that the subject will actually be slower then the sound it will produce for sound activation to work?
