Super Slow Motion Footage Captures a Ball Breaking Glass at 10,000,000fps

Let’s start out Sunday slow…. like reaaaaaaaaaallly slow… 10 million fps slow. As the saying goes: everything looks cool in slow motion; but this video of a ball hitting and breaking a pane of glass is doubly cool because it almost looks like a cinemagraph. Read more…

Nikon D4/D4s Shutter Comparison Shows Off New Mirror Damping Mechanism

When the D4s was announced, it was mentioned that the camera could shoot slightly faster than its predecessor. But that extra one frame per second isn’t the only change Nikon made to the D4’s shutter mechanism. The D4s also features a new mirror balancer and damping mechanism that reduces bounce when the camera is firing away at 11 fps.

That feature is demonstrated in the video above, which was put together by Nikon Europe using the Nikon 1 V2. With the V2, they were able to capture 1200fps video of the D4 and D4s shooting at full speed, and then place those videos side by side so you can see how much more stable the D4s mechanism is.

BTS: Ultra-Stable MoVI Footage Shot While Flying Through the Air on Skis

The MōVI freefly systems are very expensive, there’s no denying that.

Captivating Slow Motion Macro Footage of a Match Head Catching Fire

When we shared photographer Adam Magyar’s talk in which he describes the techniques he used to capture the mesmerizing photos and footage in his portfolio, he said ‘everything looks cool in slow-motion.’ And even though he’s probably right, we would add an Orwellian addendum to that statement: ‘but some things look cooler than others.’

That’s the case with this macro footage of a match head lighting on fire, which was captured at 4,000fps by Emmy Award-winning cinematographer and founder of UltraSlo, Alan Teitel. Read more…

Stainless: Mesmerizing Super Slow-Motion Footage of People Waiting for the Subway

Slow motion video is often mesmerizing, whether it shows creamer being poured ever so luxuriously into coffee, or a dog shaking off water. But the super slow motion series Stainless by photographer Adam Magyar put all of those to shame. Read more…

Mesmerizing 2,000 FPS Slow Motion Video of Creamer Being Poured into Coffee

Okay, this video doesn’t necessarily have much to do with photography, but we could think of no better way to wake you up on a Monday morning than by sharing this gorgeous footage of creamer being poured into a cup of coffee at 2,000 frames per second.

Just think of it as 2,000 captivating photos taken every second, from the moment the first droplet of creamer canon-balls into the cup, to the final moments of the video when the creamer is swirling and combining with the coffee in a tumultuous froth of white-on-black.

If you don’t want a cup of coffee after this, we’ll be shocked… I don’t even drink coffee and I kind of want some.
