    Scary precision! Do you mind if I ask...... How long have you been practicing and how often do you practice, Mr.Arturo?

    And you will not believe me LOL ... I started yesterday my first attempt to cut a card with flicks "Chilean Butterfly" and today I've got it ! ... I am shooting for one year and a month till now and still improving and I shoot a lot every time I can, 2 or 3 hours a day ...
    Cheers

    Here is an example of the weird thing that BAD quality flimsy cards do LOL ! ... anyway just hitting the card feels great !
    the light is ugly, but I believe I learned how to program the camera to avoid this in the future
