As it started to roll I figured that a dead K-3 was going to be crushed by a bullet. Much more entertaining the way it was.

Its more fun trying to time the shot than to use stopshot. I have done plenty of water drop shots and believe me the inconsistent timing actually gives you varying degree of drop patterns and all are adorable. 75% of the shots were keepers despite not using StopShot and I enjoyed all along. Also note that it does teach you timing skill in a big way. StopShot retards your timing skill in some sense. You will also realize or understand what shutter lag in the camera specification is and why it is so important.

At 6:23 you can feel its pain as it rises to see the light one last time before falling dead on its back. The pop-up flash rises like a hand asking WHYYYYY?!?!?!?!......

OK drama off. Cool vid...
