Underwater Slow Motion on Lumix GH5!

Underwater Slow Motion on Lumix GH5

The Youtube channel Backscatter has posted a glowing review of the Panasonic Lumix GH5 for underwater shooting. The camera is a favorite of low budget film makers and those looking for the utmost quality with 10 bit color in a small package.  The Backscatter review also points out that the slow motion feature of up to 180fps in Full HD works really well underwater.

We, however, recommend you stay at 120fps full HD to avoid some artifacts like moire and aliasing which the at 180fps show up easily and at 150fps are there to a lower degree. The GH5 can white-balance under water and does a stellar job at different depths according to the review.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←

Schlieren Imaging Slow Motion DIY!

Schlieren Imaging Slow Motion

Sometimes all it takes to embark on a new project is some unexpected inspiration.  On the Incredible Slow Motion video by Veritasium – Seeing the Invisible: Schlieren Imaging in SLOW MOTION we are not only inspired but awestruck by the results of this simple and doable at home scientific experiment.   The experiment allows a camera to visualize the vortexes of gases and temperature differences in the air which serve to create some very interesting scientific experiments and or artistic visualizations.

You will need a Concave Parabolic Mirror like the ones used in reflective Newtonian telescopes, “you may have one lying around from your stargazing days”,  you will also need a small light source like an LED flashlight or single diode and finally a razor blade or similar precise object to cut off the light to the camera on a plane.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←

HIGH SPEED IMAGING COURSE at MIT

HIGH SPEED IMAGING COURSE at MIT

Registration has started at Edgerton Center from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for the yearly high speed imaging course geared at the principles of shooting and preparing slow motion setups. The course goes deep into the science and art of slow motion video and has access to some of the most capable high speed gear so that students can use and experiment with first hand experience.

Previous courses have been a great success and the imagery coming out of these classes is pretty jaw dropping. If you can attend the course in June this year it could be just what you were waiting for to jump into the slow motion realm.  Access to this gear is few and far between for even experienced personnel and videographers; plus learning from experts in the field can come in very handy to get better knowledge about the process.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←

FLIR X6900sc can do Thermal Imaging at 1000fps!

FLIR X6900sc

Very little attention is placed on high speed thermal imaging because frankly it’s a field so new that only a handful of cameras can even approach that performance. The FLIR X6900sc is breaking records by now recording 1000fps at 640 x 512 resolution which is pretty high by thermal pixel standards and a memory buffer recorded on-camera RAM for 26 seconds.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←

Lambert Introduces HS540M & HS540S High Speed Cameras!

lambert

Lambert Instruments of the Netherlands has introduced a small and compact but powerful duo of high speed cameras with a monochrome sensor. The main difference in both models is that one – HS540S –is designed for streaming data continuously to a computer terminal for high end production lines and the other – HS540M – is for research settings that do not require full continuous recording by streaming monitoring. A variety of mounts supported Nikon F-mount, C-mount, M42-mount, custom choice.

Camera Info Below:

Lambert HS540M
The Lambert HS540M is a high-speed camera for research applications. It has up to 16 GB of internal storage and is ideal for scientific research and industrial R&D. After recording your data, you can review the results in our software and trim the high-speed video before exporting it to your computer.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←

Edgerton MIT offering high speed imaging course!

EdgertonCenterMIT-logo

The MIT Edgerton Center is offering a new 4 day  in depth course in high speed imaging at their Cambridge, MA Campus. The Edgerton center is as you guessed it the DOC Edgerton building named after the famous high speed imaging researcher and inventor.  It is also the main inspiration for the edgertronic high speed camera. It could be a great way to get exposed to the latest gear from the top manufacturers of high speed cameras and learn techniques, lighting for hi speed and problem solving.
