Capture bullets in flight with the first safe, affordable high-speed flash.
The Vela One is the fastest flash around. Take pin-sharp photos of supersonic bullets and explosions using a normal SLR. Pre-order now for estimated delivery in June 2015. Pay nothing until April and cancel at any time.
The Vela One is 100 times faster than a regular speedlight, which is an eternity in high speed photography. See the difference, even with an airgun.
Top feature: it won’t kill you!
The Vela One is cheaper, safer and faster than any other way of taking high-speed photos. Compare for yourself!
