Watching bubbles burst at 2,500 frames per second is mesmerizing

  1. It never ceases to amaze me how different our world looks when things are slowed down. Something as simple as a match head igniting at 4,000 frames per second or a slinky compressing in ultra-slow motion is utterly beautiful.

    I liked equally the creation and the prismatic effect of the bubbles, and also watching them disintegrate. Very cool! And I found 4,000 FPS was too slow to watch - almost boring! I'm glad that they sped up parts and slowed down others. It made the video interesting.

    Too bad they didn't pick a day with a little more sun.
  6. Truly amazing. Thank you for posting this.
  7. I photo a bee at 10000th of a second and he is in 3 places. It so amazed me at the time. He was hovering and when my flash went off he went crazy and hopped 3 times. So in a 10000 th of a second frame he is at 3 places at once. I know this because he is fainter in 2 places. If it were 3 bees it should be the same in all 3 places. But he is more defined in one place and faint in the 2 other. Also mind you that this shot is not with high speed sync. So the shutter does not expose in sections for 250th a second with the flash duration of 10000th which eliminates the subject very brief for it to be a 10000th equivalency shot.

    Not only is it all that and more, but it's also a more profound way of wasting your life than going on the internet and talking about it.
  9. Not one of the shots were valuable from the scientific observers point of view. The end was always out of frame. You could never see where the bubble was disappearing to. Did it collapse into one drop or what. That place was always out of frame. Useless. Hahahaha. Or was this done on purpose. Or too quick to catch. The funny thing is the number is always 76. hahaha. Robot taking notes!
  10. Yep also a bullet hitting a melon at 100,000 fps. I hope that was not your head captain cranky. hahaha
    Waisted time? oh and your time isn't waisted while you watch child porn?
