Water droplet collision photos need to be taken in a darkened room. But it does not need to be completely dark. You will need a camera, a speedlite flash, a tripod, and a magic arm to hold up the valve and the Pluto Valve Kit.
step one: Fill the tube with water. Insert and press the small tube. Make sure that the air above the water and between the small tube and the large tube does not leak.Open the valve and remove air from the valve. Please try multiple short clicks.
Step two: Open your camera, frame and adjust the focus. The shutter speed is set to 1-2 seconds. The drive mode is set to IR Remote. If your camera does not support infrared remote control, you will need to set up the camera manually. Use a valve cable to connect the valve to the Aux port of the Pluto Trigger. Connect the flash to the camera port of the Pluto Trigger.
Step three: Turn on your Pluto Trigger. Launch the Pluto Trigger app on your phone. Set the IR settings to match your camera model. Select Droplet mode from the menu. Press the start button to test. The Pluto Trigger should send IR commands to trigger your camera, release two droplets and then trigger your flash.
Step four: Next, we will calibrate the time to capture the droplet collision. First determine the Flash delay calibration. Set "Drop1 Size" to 10ms and "Drop2 Size" to 0, which will only release a drop. The flash should be triggered when the first drop bounces from the water and rises to the highest position. Click the Auto Calibration button to the right of the Flash Delay settings. Set "Step" to 5ms, "Interval" to 5s, and click the Start Calibration button. The Pluto Trigger now takes a photo every 5 seconds, increasing the flash delay by 5 milliseconds each time. Monitor the camera's screen. When the droplet reaches the highest point, the calibration is stopped. Set the Drop2 Size to 10ms and calibrate the Drop2 Delay.
