It’s that time of the year again when we revisit and dig up slow motion footage that is just out of this world cool. From the most well known names in YouTube slow-mo to the obscure coolness of the lab and phone tests.
We choose a list of what we believe represent the current cutting edge in slow motion video art and research. Not everything is about gear and specs, a little inspiring footage can make your current camera shine again when you get an idea and put it to the test.
We encourage you to subscribe via the credit links on the text above each video and encourage these footage producers if you really like their work. And of course share them with your friends and family.

We encourage you to go out and shoot a great slow motion video and get inspired by the work from others that are making real waves in the high frame rate art. Congratulations to all featured creators and all of you who did great work in slow motion, the art has never been more diverse or rewarding as it is now. Doc Edgerton the precursor of all modern slow motion video would be awe struck by the diversity of ideas and execution.
