      search on youtube and you will find a ton of videos on how to do this .. i spent about 15 GBP to set this stuff up thats just about the cost of a good meal !!!

      Post your pictures here and we will see how we can improve ...and here the game is in number of captures and selecting the best ... well unless you have this ...HiViz - Kits - Multi-Trigger 2 Kit

      Good idea but difficult to be able to focus on all of these at the same time .

      And guys do try this out at home and you dont need a DSLR to do this any camera with continous shooting capabilities will allow you to do this ...so post your experiences we will see how we can make these better.

      Also this can be done with the 18-55 lenses as well you dont really need a macro lense for this , i used one this time because i had one but this is not essential.

      I will also work on post processing these images and put them up for everyone to see how i have tuned them...

      This is how my setup looked when i was ready to shoot and well not in the frame is the garbage bag partly filled with water and dipping down water from a hole i made on it with a small pin !!!!

      People with normal Canon P&S cameras don't despair!!! You too can join the game and do a lot more!
      Use CHDK on your ubiquitous Point & Shoot Canon Camera (lots of models are supported) and unleash the beast hidden within! Canon Rulz!

      Samples above are from CHDK website

      CHDK Wiki

      CHDK Features

      RAW - CHDK can record raw files, giving you access to every bit of data the sensor saw, without compression or processing. Raw files can be manipulated on the camera, or processed on your PC. CHDK also has experimental support for the open DNG raw standard.
      Override Camera parameters - Exposures from 2048s to 1/60,000s with flash sync. Full manual or priority control over exposure, aperture, ISO and focus.
      Bracketing - Bracketing is supported for exposure, aperture, ISO, and even focus.
      Video Overrides - Control the quality or bitrate of video, or change it on the fly. Extended video clip length - 1 hour or 2GB.
      Scripting - Control CHDK and camera features using ubasic and Lua scripts. Enables time lapse, motion detection, advanced bracketing, and much more. Many user-written scripts are available on the forum and wiki.
      Motion detection - Trigger exposure in response to motion, fast enough to catch lightning.
      Edge overlay - Detect the edges in a scene, and display them later. Ideal for timelapses, stop-motion, stereography and much more.
      Live Histogram - CHDK includes a customizable, live histogram display, like those typically found on more expensive cameras. (RGB, blended, luminance and for each RGB channel)
      Zebra-Mode - Displays under and overexposure areas live on the screen.
      GRIDS - Create custom grids and display whichever one suits your shooting conditions.
      Multi-Lingual Interface - CHDK supports about 22 languages, and adding more languages is simple.
      DOF Calculator - Display detailed DOF information on the screen.
      Customizable OSD - Improved display of battery status, free space, camera parameters, and much more. Fully customizable with an on-screen editor.
      Filebrowser - Manage files without a PC.
      Textreader - Display text files on your camera.
      Games - Play Reversi, Sokoban, Mastermind or 4-in-a-Row on your camera.
      Calendar
      USB remote - Simple DIY remote allows you to trigger exposures or scripts.
      Benchmark - Compare the performance of your SD cards.
      User Menu - Edit your own customizable User-Menu for fast access to often used features.
      Battery Indicator - Always on
      Ability to remove dark frame subtraction (why would one use it?)
      there is even more → read the Manual & explore the wiki.

      BTW, Beautiful!

      How can achieve 10% of that with my Fuji, 10MP? Shall I use any special lighting mode? It supports burst mode.

      Yes, water has always been beautiful .. if you need a better explanation check out youtube for "pranayamanithooval" or "tip tip barsa paani" , i am sure you will agree

      emphasis is on providing more and more lighting so that the camera can use higher apertures and shutter speeds to effectively freeze motion.

      Turning off Image stibilitsation , Auto focus and Auto White balance are reqired on the P&S Camera. You need to prefocus on the point where the water drops are falling , and turn on AF lock

      Uee a tripod , this is mandatory else use a stable support .. see the picture i have added of my setup

      To light up the area being focussed you can use even two or three table lamps running 60W or higher lights .this will provide enough light intensity for the cams to operate a higher shutter speeds without effort.

      10 MP is more than enough , and its not about MP , this is about shutter speed , lighting and accuracy in focussing
