To capture “portraits of the sun” and to illustrate its power, General Electric filled 20 weather balloons with hydrogen and helium, surrounded them with 24 Canon DSLR cameras (18 7Ds and 6 60Ds), and shot the balloons exploding Matrix-style.

The credits said 18 7Ds and 6 60Ds…
Which effectively have the same photo taking abilities.
But yet, still the title is still wrong.
pretty awesome video.

Thanks for the catch. We’ve fixed the title and post :)
It was, but we corrected it :)
The hydrogen is not exploding, it is burning. The pop you hear is simply the container (balloon). :)
Definitely not the best execution I’ve seen for this type of video. And GE is still a freeloading government leeching company who’ll use ANY buzzword to continue raking in its billions.
And that’s coming from a capitalist pig.
If I’m not mistaken, this is combustion. The sun doesn’t ‘burn’ (there’s no oxygen in space). Its a nuclear reaction. Hence this does not correctly capture “Portraits of the Sun” .
this is pretty rubbish…
