What the Nikon D4’s 11FPS Looks Like When Captured at 1000FPS

Here’s a camera shop promo that features the Nikon D4 filmed with a Phantom Gold high speed camera. It shows what the camera’s 11fps shutter and iris mechanisms look like when captured at 1000 frames per second.

    A great ad for the guys at Scheimpflug, really.  Skip to 0:50 for the good stuff, end at 1:30.  A nice 40 seconds, if a bit overly produced for what the video is.  Still nicely done, but it doesn’t really show the shutter that well at 1000fps.

    The whole tone of this video is what someone transported from 1500 to today might feel towards consumer technology.

    Less shiny, more pew pew.

    Could the editing and production in that video be any more annoying? It’s like they gave a 15-year-old boy video-editing software and let them go crazy.

    So stylized, the video is pretty useless.

    That mirror is very steady, not a lot of shaking going on. Nice. (And I’m a Canon fanboy, for your information)

    What is so exciting about it ? D3s had the same burst speed ?

    Agreed. This could have been 1/4 the length. I lost interest and watch a cute kitten video instead.

    Awful cutted video. Garbage!
    The only interesting moment would have been at 1:02min. Would! Because the motion of the shutter isn’t visible.
    What a poor video when someone has that much equipment! 2-3 sec of content in 2min of waste.
