Please note that some of the more remarkable photos on the Infinity site where everything is in focus, employ a technique called "focus stacking" where multiple exposures are merged - time consuming, but with the right software anyone can do it! The fly photo above is not focus stacked, and thus the fly wings are out of focus.
For high-speed cameras we recommend the K2 DistaMax as it passes the most light for high-speed exposure.
