200 MILLION FRAMES PER SECOND!!!
this is INSANE. :meh:
why not just use a video camera?
Its a high speed camera. Although 200 million seems a little extreme. Search timewarp on Youtube. I think they are shooting at a max of 10,000 fps. Nothing like a video camera.
Video is way to slow.
Because a vid camera can't shoot at the speed required for slow mo.
This isn't just slow-mo. Look they want to examine exactly what happens to a material for instance when a bullet hits it.
This is the equivalent of hitting a sheet of glass with a hammer and seeing what is happening to the glass. You don't wan a fancy slow-mo of the glass exploding. You want to be able to watch slowly how the cracks form so you can best decide on how to manufacture new glass.
Nothing is overkill if there's a need for it.
Some rich kid's asking his mommy to buy him this camera... somewhere around the world, I'll bet.
