As much as I love going out and using gear and creating stuff with it, I can’t help but get excited about the geeky technical side of photography and video, too. This particular video from Curious Droid talks about ultra high speed cameras. And while the Panasonic GH5 with its 180fps 4K footage is quite impressive, we’re talking cameras that shoot millions of frames per second.
I had wondered in the past how cameras had managed to track objects in slow motion moving at or over the speed of sound. And we’ve all seen the nuclear test footage of bombs exploding in slow motion. But how did they manage this? Especially given the technology of the day? Turns out, it’s all down to mirrors.
