We had a lot of fun shooting this, and again, I learned new things. Besides the handling of my Fuji.

The Fuji had something like 400ms delay between the fingerpress and shutter release, including the pre-flash. Both kids were queuing to jump from the chair, and about 1/3 shots succeeded having them in mid-air. They were having a great time retrying again and again for a better shot.

The next day they wanted to do it again. I took my Canon 6D with external flashes etc, and they got bored after three jumps. Why? Because all shots succeeded and it was no longer challenging.

My lesson for this was not to make it too easy for them and a success ration about 40% will keep them interested.
