Big thanks to everyone who got this on explore!!!!
Image of water being dropped onto a vibrating sonicare toothbrush, shot at 1/8000 of a second. I needed the extremely high shutter speed due to the crazy fast vibrations of this thing. I tried this shot with milk (looked kinda odd) as well as dish soap (didn't splatter), but I think I like this one the best. I taped the toothbrush to a cheap tripod and when turned on the whole tripod vibrated like heck. Hope my downstairs neighbors don't hate me =]
Setup: The only way to get the high shutter speed was to use a flash in high speed mode, so I used an OC-E3 off camera cord as it was the only thing that would work for this setup. Flash was about 45 degrees to the left, and I used some white paper on the right to bounce the fill. Red poster board was placed behind the toothbrush.

Homemade Digital Shutter release
I spent way too much time messing with this thing today but it works like a
champ!. With about $30, I was able to build the homemade shutter release
with a 40' extension. I built it modular so that I had a short version to
use right off of the camera or to add the 37' extension to it to get some
distance. I have a bird feeder on my deck that I get a lot of visitors
(when I remember to put food out) I wanted to be able to tripod mount my
EOS and run the long cable through the living room window so that I could
fire some really close shots of the bird friends. See the next shot that
was taken using this setup (no birds before it got dark)
