Creating High Speed Movies With "Regular" DSLRs
Catching a bullet in mid air is pretty impressive. There are some high end techniques you can use to make that possible starting from the relatively cheaper photogate kits, all the way up to air gap strobes. But I don't think I have ever seen a movie made from cutting together a sequence of high speed butter shots.
"Smarter Every Day" Destin did just that, he used the repetitive pattern of a bullet shot from a fixed gun to take a series of pictures with increasing shot-to-picture delay. The result is a series of pictures that when put together create a moving bullet movie.
(and if that was not enough for you, check the matches trick at 2:54). Movie after the jump.
