Half-popped

    Newer Older

    large is cool

    My Casio is the fastest consumer digital camera on the market. It can capture 60fps. I held this water balloon in my hand while Mrs. ecstaticist popped it with a bbq skewer.

    The balloon is half-popped in this frame. The water is still in spherical shape, and it is wearing the ballon like a hat.

    So for 1/1250th of a second, I am holding a sphere of water with a yellow hat.

    The Casio Ex-F1 is capable of 1/40,000th of a second exposures, but you need unnaturally bright light to use it.

    Oh, BTW, wait til you see the slow motion video of the water balloon NOT popping as it hits the ground.
