TIME has posted a series of videos on the reaction of fans to the World Cup final game between France and Croatia shot by Videographer James Autery on the streets of New York City. While he only used 120fps video capture, it is enough to fully show human reaction detail. Follow the link below to watch them at their official site:
There is a plethora of new slow motion videos being produced each day and hundreds of thousands a year to maybe millions. However there is a clear distinction between the good the bad and the middle of the road efforts to capture content. There is also a clear trend to monetize slow motion on Youtube and Facebook and that makes it easy to find video trends of sports tricks, nature themes and people shooting others doing pranks or sexy poses that will allow for millions of views.
We try to find footage that is great in it’s own right and strives to avoid the monetization aspect of cookie cutter slow motion that while entertaining; does not better the crop of footage that enrich your mind and senses.
Slow motion is becoming more mainstream by the day with the advent of cheaper higher frame rate cameras, Youtube channels dedicated to the craft and now even video gaming getting in on the high frame rate action to capture slow motion moments without the use of a real camera and relying on real-time rendered graphics.
While there is more of a tilt toward just visual enjoyment of the footage, some video samples help with understanding scientific concepts and safety concerns like the airbag test. We gathered 10 video samples that are making the rounds on the web with the help of slow motion.
