Chipper shot at 2.4K@60FPS HSCA (VIDEO)
« on: August 08, 2018, 05:31:57 PM »
There have been many of you that have asked how high can the HSCA capture through the scope so I demonstrate 2.4K@60FPS and Still have 4K@30FPS in reserve. The point of this video is to demonstrate just how clear you can capture a shot but it comes at a cost of the pellet in flight action.

Maybe not perfect, but getting closer to state of the art. Speaking of which...

My long-time friend Tim Samaras, managed to convert a high-speed, rotary mirror camera to use CCD imagers rather than film. This allowed him to capture over 1.4 million frames per second. This in turn, allowed him to capture the event-horizon of a lightning strike (
Sadly, Tim was killed along with his son, and cohort 3 year ago outside Moore, OK. His camera, however, is still being used to detect event-horizons. But interestingly enough, newer types of (single matrix) image capture devices have approached 1 million FPS. Some day in the not to far distant future, this kind of speed will become almost common place. When that happens, we'll all have the opportunity to watch in super slow-mo, assumingely at high resolution as well. I can only imagine what we'll see.
