We’ve seen some pretty extreme slow motion from The Slow Mo Guys, and it’s all very impressive and often satisfyingly beautiful. But unless you’re quick with maths in your head, it can be very difficult to see just how that equates to in real-time. Even when they tell you “this clip was x nanoseconds”, like, how fast is that really?
Well, in this video, Gav breaks it down into more manageable speeds for our brains to understand. Thanks to the new Phantom TMX7510, Gav can shoot 90,000 frames per second at a respectable resolution. How fast is this in real terms? Well, when played back at 25 frames per second, one second of real-time gets stretched out to an entire hour.
