High Speed Waterdrop Pics

these are some water drop pics, real shutter speed unknown but had the over ride set to 1/100,000th of a second and flash set to on (flash seems to be sync'd at these high shutter speeds amazingly) (so far fastest confirmed speed for my model has been 1/10,000th of a second). this was in a well lit room (3 halogen bulbs above me) just pointing at the faucet. camera used was a Canon Powershot SD1000 loaded with AllBest build #34.

True, very nice shots !

@Phox - Why a macro lens ? Isn't 7 mm close enough for you ?  :D

nope that was the original lense on the SD1000, no filters or anything on the end.

True, very nice shots !

That's just amazing!
I have a TX-1 with an incredible lens on it That I just can't wait to do stuff like this with.
I don't know if anyone will make a program for it. Your photos make me want to go buy an SD1000 just so I can install the firmware.
You smite like a girl!

Hej,
Well I also played a bit with CHDK, the tap and the sink...
Made a little poll to decide the best of them on a friend's site.

But one problem... I can't seem to get the focus right each time... how you guys get the focus right ?
Oh and also I patched all but the first one with the AutoCHDKPatcher and can't understand how the second pic ended with 1/25s exposure :/

Hej,
Thanks for your answer, but what I don't get with the flash freezing thinggy is what is happening with the remaining time without flash then ?
Cause it would be like a black or very dark frame added to the pic ? Then I don't really get how it could turn to be looking good with a dark frame added with an overexposed drop pic ?
Or maybe I'm still missing how it works there ?

Btw the first pic I had to edit a bit because it was too dark, but others were only cropped and resized.

About the focus, if I MF I just can't see when the focus is good, and AF seems to take the bottom of the sink. By the way I read yesterday some guy saying I could MF on my hand being where the water would fall, I need to try that I think.
Hope I can improve on that cause I have the feeling the blurs come more from a focus problem.
