Christmas festivities have already started for most of us, but if you are still hanging around on the world wide web, here is a short video pretty self-explanatory about the different fps you can shoot an action at.
England based ‘slow mo guy‘ Gavin Free shoots with the Phantom Flex, a camera that can shoot up to 2570 fps at 1920 x 1080 and was apparently used to shoot the slow-mo in Guy Ritchie second installment of Sherlock Holmes.
It is interesting to me that if the number of frame per second is the key component for the visual result, the way the mug falls and explodes also modify my appreciation of X or Y speed.
How do you feel about the different speeds? If you don’t have a phantom flex, don’t forget that there is another way to get powerful slow-mo with Twixtor, and you can read all about it here:
