“Television series such as MythBusters and Time Warp often use high-speed cameras to show their tests in slow motion. Saving the recorded high-speed images can be time consuming because the newest consumer cameras today have resolutions up to four megapixels at record rates over 1000 frames per second, which means in one second the user will have over 11 gigabytes of image data. Technologically these cameras are very advanced, yet saving images requires use of slower standard video-computer interfaces.” Wikipedia‘s High Speed Cameras page needs an update because as of late many consumer friendly, Slow mo cameras have hit the market. These 4K and HD cameras rival the frame rate and resolution once only seen on TV. Click the model of camera and read my article for each of the best HFR slow motion cameras of 2016.
