I took a look at the "milkdrop" photos. One is the mirror image of the other. Anyone know which is the 'correct' one? Bunthorne 17:25, 14 December 2006 (UTC)
Official name of "multiflash" technique?
Does anybody know what is the offical (or most often used) name of this "multiflash" technique Edgerton invented (like here: )? The most often used term I found is "stroboscopic motion photography", but I'm now kinda stumped because I didn't find a wikipedia article about the technique. Any help? Thanks!

There's no point in having a photograph on this page that wasn't taken by Edgerton, regardless of how close a connection there is. Dr. Deathface 09:18, 12 November 2007 (UTC)
It is great that he used stroboscopes, but what on Earth does this have to do with flash being associated with modern photography? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 17:00, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
We need a photo of Doc Edgerton himself, as well as a few of his most striking images, for example:
- Milk-drop "crown"
- Bird in flight
- Atomic explosion, microseconds after ignition
- Bullet cutting playing card
- Popping balloon
