    It's not so much a super fast camera as a super fast shutter speed.

    It takes a single photo at like .0000000000000001 seconds and then does that many many many many many many times layering exposures.

    Edit: How did I get 10 dumbs for this?

    I don't see what else somebody would be referring to when they say "fast camera".

    cypher since you went out of your way to rate him dumb i think he's right. this isn't ONE light beam (or whatever) it is following. they turn the light / laser on and it takes ONE picture. then they do it again and again and compile all the images in the correct order to make it look like it is one when it is actually many different ones

    Well based on the standard 2 hour estimate for 4.7 GB DVD's, that video of the bullet that he said would be about a year long would require about 20,000 GB of memory. That's 20 terabytes for about 2-3 seconds in real-time, and you'd need about 4,250 DVD's.

    Why do you think he actually took a video of that?

    When can we see this cheap so we can fuck around with slow motion.

    A camera that can capture 1 trillion frames in one second and then store them is a huge difference from a camera that takes a single very fast picture many times repeatedly. The whole process they said takes like hours.

    Yeah, while it makes not much difference for a specific ray of light in a lab, I doubt you'd be able to do that bullet video, unless you had 1,000,000,000,000 bullets to spare.

    The most interesting thing is in the last 30 seconds.


    The whole process is basically a new and very clever method of data analyzation and incredibly well done synchronization but the result, wow.

    So it's like a sonar, but it uses light instead of sound. That's genius.

    I've love to see more of those videos, maybe hitting different mirrors and stuff like that.

    It isn't obsolete yet. The little particle of light you see going through the bottle is not the same from a frame to another. It's not exaclty the same as a 1,000 billion FPS camera.
