Phantom High Speed Movie GalleryHigh speed photography is an engineering tool, much as is an oscilloscope or a computer. It is a photographic technique that enables us to visualize and analyze motion. Especially motions that are too fast for the human eye or conventional cameras to perceive.
Phantom High Speed Movie Gallery
Here are two examples:
Snuffed Candle: Schlierne optics and a Phantom v7 at 1000 fps, 400 us exposure show the heat plum and turbulance of a candle being snuffed out.
Backyard Hummingbird: This shot was taken with a Miro 4 at 640x480 at just under 2000 fps. In "real time" the movie was taken for 1 second during which the bird flaps its wings approximately 72 times.
