Shattering glass is one of the classic subjects to film in slow motion. But with their recent video, Gavin of the Slow Mo Guys takes it to the extreme. He plays “a wine glass’s least favorite sound,” cranks up the volume until the glass shatters, and films it all at the staggering 187,500fps.
Screw-on filters are designed to be a protective cover for the front element of your lens (in addition to any aesthetic alteration they provide). But just because they’re meant to take the brunt of an impact in the event you drop your lens doesn’t mean it’s any less hurtful to watch them shatter to pieces.
No need to worry any more though. Filter manufacturer Heliopan has announced it will start offering the industry’s first drop protection warranty on all of its UV and protection filters.
