Droplet - Werkzeug für High-Speed Fotografie

Droplet is a Open Source Project for the microcontroller-based High-Speed-Photography with special attention to Waterdrop Photography and Liquid Art.

Droplet is a one-man job and 100% free. I started this project in January 2012 and it’s now very well-known and used by many people all around the world. I spend very much time on development and appreciate every donation.

Know Problems and Bugs

Known memory issue with Arduino 1.0.3

If you have any memory related problems with the droplet sketch (i.e. wrong device setups on the arduino, frozen board, …) try to use Arduino 1.0.1 instead.

Droplet cannot connect to the appropriate device

Problem executing Droplet under Mac OS X starting with version 10.7.5:

Gatekeeper prevents the execution of unsigned applications. To resolve this problem, you need to deactivate Gatekeeper before the first start of Droplet. Afterwards Gatekeeper can be reactivated again.
