Yesterday on FStoppers they pointed us to a European video that was created with an Olympus I-Speed. The top end model of this small video camera can operate at frame rates up to (and this is not typo) 1,000,000 frames per second. It would be used in the high end research and medical fields and had export restrictions on it for obvious reasons.
The lower end models operate in the enimic 2 to 4 thousand frames per second. LOL. We've all seen the super slow motion shots of bullets being shot out of gun barrels, etc. an I-SPeed is the type of camera used for such work.
There was another video on YouTube of a water balloon being broken with a pin. It filled the frame and 2 minutes into the video the remaining ball of water had not yet left the frame. SUPER slow motion!
The above video was using a Sigma 24mm F/1.8 lens. I think I want to buy one!
