This is What a Handgun Shot Looks Like at 73,000FPS

Comment

Want to see what a speeding bullet leaving a handgun looks like at 73,000 frames per second? Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman of Mythbusters recently decided to find out by pointing a Phantom v2010 high-speed camera at Hyneman while he fired a pistol. While the price of this camera hasn’t been published, its predecessor, the v1610 cost around $100,000.

“Adam Savage is nearly rendered speechless by incredible slomo footage,” the Discovery Channel writes. “Shot at these speeds, the video reveals a dance of pressure and fire that would otherwise be missed by the unaided eye.”
