Life in the Blink of an Eye, or: Shooting 50MP Olympics Photos at 30fps

“The Sony Alpha 1 is like driving a Formula 1 racecar," says photographer Nick Didlick. "Give the race car too much gas going into a corner and you're going to spin out of control. With the Alpha 1, shoot too early and you will have endless amounts of data at 30fps on a 50-megapixel camera.” The secret for both is timing.

SnappyCam Lets iPhone Users Capture 20FPS at Full Resolution

Take a look at that stock camera app on your iPhone. Does a fair job, doesn't it? Then SnappyCam Pro 3.0 lands on it and makes you realize how truly slow the stock app takes photos. For your reference, it's about 3-to-6 images per second at full resolution (assuming you're using an iPhone 5).

SnappyCam, on the other hand, is able to take 20 full-resolution images per second on the iPhone 5. You read that right, a whopping 20 frames per second. It's all thanks to John Papandriopoulos (who has a Ph.D. in electrical engineering) and his frustration with what he thought to be "inadequate" camera applications (we're looking at you, stock camera app).
