The Matrix effect was done using large object/camera distances. The
original poster was trying to get multiple exposures of a reasonably small
object (an apple). You'd have a hard time trying to arrange that many
cameras around it.
Somewhere in my archive (i.e. stacks of books) I have a Kodak publication
titled "High speed photography". It's informative but it's old so checking
with Kodak if there's a new version might be a place to start.
