2000 frames per second?

Don't know if this been up before, but they seem to have a cam that captures 2000 frames per second. Impressive video!

Although I would think that 2000 frames would be even slower, you be the judge of that. It says 2000 frames on the front page of their website.

[EDIT]
I did a quick search, came up with this!

10,000 frames per second at 1280x1024 resolution. That would make some impressive slowmotion!

Those clips are wicked. I especially like Waterballoon1. Its fascinating to me how extreme slow motion completely changes how I look at basic everyday stuff.
Great link, Andreas

That would be a little over 60 times normal speed, assuming it was video. I shot some stuff a long time ago in 16mm at 100 times normal, ie., 2400 fps. It looked quite a bit slower than that. The extra 40% makes a big difference.

Wait till you find out how much it costs to rent the camera and the engineer to run it. Owning one is almost out of the question for most companies.

You mean the video camera? I didn't see what kind it was.

With film they sometimes use VistaVision cameras running that fast for sfx but I don't remember the rate.

Back in my film days we always rented the high speed cameras from Redlake Labs in California. I don't know if they're still around or not. You're right--nobody owns that stuff; you have to rent.

We had one of our grad students who was able to write a
grant to rent a high speed video camera for some experimental
video art.

The system was pretty cool, but had some issues with color
saturation (pretty washed out) and data transfer from the camera's
4 gigs of RAM to the laptop's hard drive. That took WAY too long.

I believe you can *buy* the system for something in the $50K-$75K
ballpark.
