I bought a High Speed Video Camera, What Should I Film? Answered

I bought a high speed video camera for my birthday! (Excessive exclamation marks.) Specifically, the Casio EX-F1. Do you have any suggestions on what I could film in ultra slowmo (1200 fps)?

why did they make it full auto. The beretta M9 is not a full auto pistol. :( Still cool looking. Can you shoot a raw egg with it? :) :)

Why did you type "This one is a little long, it's a 15 second firework" in small letters?

OK here I go:

  • Sneezing
  • blinking
  • TV turning on
  • Your dog drinking water
  • A water fountain
  • A bird taking off
  • Something cooking....
  • Pouring water into a glass
  • Pouring soda into a glass
  • Breaking and egg
  • Fliping a coin
  • Slapping yourself or someone else (the result is incredible)
  • Spitting
  • A light bulb turning on
  • Your dog barking
  • Punching a wall
  • Someone else taking a picture!
  • Jump rope
  • Gymnastics
  • Swimming!
  • A cup full of a substance (preferably coffe) Falling and shattering
  • Michael Felps Swimming, but the picture will surely come out blurry...
  • A horse running
  • a bee flying
  • water tap...
  • ice falling onto water or soda inside a cup
  • A fan moving (blowing)
  • throwing a water ballon and it popping

Fliping a coin

I'll do that next. It's been raining all week so I've been unable to film anything epic yet. >:(

Correct, it is a State Quarter. I don't recall which one it is, though.

. It just blows me away that you can do that with a consumer camera. . Why is it so wide? (Or short?) . Can't wait to see more.

1. It is truly amazing. 2. I'm not sure. It's the default setting for 1200fps, the screen size decreases for each increase in fps. 3. If only it would stop raining...

2. My guess on that is that the shutter can only open so fast and the larger the frame rate, the shorter the shutter can open before it has to close again.

Lay out a row of matches, side-by-side, heads touching, and light the first one. (You may need to fix them down.)

. How fast is 1200fps? How fast are "normal" hi-speed cameras, eg, the ubiquitous bursting water balloon?

A normal-speed camera is only 24fps, so one second of 1200fps footage would take 50s to play back at "normal" speed.

That's normal for film. For video it's 30fps. So this is 40x slower. As I recall, the 1200fps mode didn't look very good. the 600fps and 300 fps modes were better.

For any interested, here's a shot of a second hand (It starts at the beginning of a second and ends just after it turns):


The 1200fps mode needs a lot of lighting. The quality is excellent with the proper amount of lighting, (Though this isn't shown in the above example as this was a quick setup).

Very interesting that you can see the bounce so clearly when the ratchet stops the turn.

. It seems that most slo-mo cameras shoot at 1000-5000 fps. . Amazing that one can buy that kind of speed at "WalMart" for $1000 (or less).
