    I've got some pretty good stop-action at 1/1000 and above.

    My Nikon can shoot up to 1/4000, but rarely will use that quick a shutter speed. I can set my ISO very high to make shutter speeds faster, but pix get a little too noisy for me.

    The second one (the sequence) was shot at 1/1,000,000 of second shutter speed. Most likely frames from video.
    The first one is luck. A good DSLR can capture that at 1/2000th of a second, but you would have to be lucky.

    I have one that will take the top photo. I have a bunch of shots like that. It takes some luck but I get twenty or so a day when taking pictures of our high school team at a conference shoot. It's an off the shelf Olympus DSLR. Paul Leeper

    It does take some luck. I try to take pix that show the bird breaking so that is what I try to time for. Sometimes you squeeze early and if you are lucky and if the background is clear you can stop the shot string.

    Michael- Your first photograph is instructional. The shooter has shot, broke the target, the gun has moved down due to recoil and the shooters face is still on the stock and his arm is still high pushing the gun into his face. That is how he broke the target. Doing that will work for all of us.

    On the negative side, it appears (photos 1 and 2) as if his head is rolled a little bit over the stock rather than being in an upright position. This suggests that lowering the butt pad or using a slightly higher rib might help this shooter.

    My three pictures above are a sequence of the same target.


    In the top picture the shooter has recognized the target angle and is starting to move his gun toward it.


    In the second picture he has the proper sight picture and fired with the shot just out of the barrel.


    In the bottom picture he has seen the target break in the tree line and is dismounting his gun. The bottom picture appears that he has raised his head when in fact an interval of time has elapsed showing him dismounting his gun.


    I held down the shutter when he called pull and didn't let off until he dismounted. Thus 2.5 frames per second captured the scene at approximately 0.8 sec, 1.6 sec, and 2.5 sec.


    An interesting side note was that he never realized that he raised his right heel when shooting until he saw these pictures.

    Here is a picture that I had taken a couple years back. It was with a fast shutter speed, I think like 1/1000.

    Here is another photo, taken with a fast shutter speed. I think it was around 1/1500ish.

    Shot with my Nikon D200 and sigma 100-300 lens.

    Hey Paul,

    They did get the goose, unfortunately this shot was placed with too much of a lead and was about 6 inches to a foot in front of it...
