Watch a shutter of a DSLR in slow motion

Unread post by ~Z~ »

Gav shows you how insanely quick the inside of a DSLR camera moves when it takes a picture, by filming it at 10,000 fps.
Camera filmed is a Canon 7D.
This video is a good demonstration of how a rolling shutter works.
Shot with a Phantom Flex at 10,000fps

Thanks for that link. Very interesting stuff. I never knew about the rolling shutter nor why things "leaned" while moving sideways across a scene.

If that's what you think of it, that's pretty disturbing... :? :? :lol:

Love the Slow Mo Guys. Gavin Free is really awesome with his Phantom Flex and it has been used to record the slow mo on Sherlock Holmes 2. If you have a second, watch ALL of their videos. They are simply fantastic.
This is my life. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

If this is a problem get used to it.
