How a Film Camera works in Slow Motion - The Slow Mo Guys
Merch! -
Gav shows the impressive internals of an old 16mm motion picture camera by filming it in some lovely crisp 4K slow motion at 1000fps. Lights! Camera!......... well that's it, really.

    You guys have done several videos on bullet impacts, firearm actions and the like. There's one video that would answer a long standing question in the air gun community: How much does the barrel of a spring-piston air rifle move before the pellet exits the barrel? The internal functioning of these air guns results in recoil in two directions over time. The accuracy of the air rifle is highly dependant on how it is held by the shooter as all the recoil motions are affected. Some serious high-speed camera video would put an end to a lot of hearsay and folklore. Thanks


    Pls make a slo mo of cold welding 👍

    I love this so much. It's amazing how the film just BARELY stops moving by the time the shutter exposes it again. And that probe lens! I've been wanting one for a while but can't justify the purchase yet. Someday!

    Weird, I never got a notification for this video and from the looks of the view counter, alot of other people missed it too.

    where is the other slow mo guy ? long time no see

  • agentdarkboote

    Hey Gav and Dan! Can you do a video on "rib vortices" under breaking waves? It makes for some awesome slow mo footage! See for an example: Also, if you're not Gav and Dan and you're reading this and think this phenomenon is super cool, join in in asking them for it please!

    Hi guys, what do you think about a tribute to Michelangelo Antonioni''s Zabriskie Point? Should be interesting to record the slow motion explosions of the same / similar objetcs that the he flmed in 1970. What do you think about?

    Here's an idea that will get zero views in the USA, a cricket ball on bat in slow mo. I'd also love to see a spinners ball hitting the ground and moving sideways.

  • ZTenski

    If you're looking for video ideas, the inside of a DLP projector is pretty unreal and might make a nice cheap project, assuming you have macro lenses. It's got millions of tiny mirrors on a 2 inch surface that all move up to dozens of times per frame to make the color pixels. I'd be interested in seeing it in slow mo. There's one guy who's done it with strobe lights but I'd be curious to see it in fluid motion.

    You guys should do a video of shooting or blowing up a propane tank. I think it would be a cool yet experimental video will for example when it blows up with the propane ignite or will the gases just escape into the air

    Hi Gav, great episode with some unique detail, cheers. i was wondering if you had ever thought of doing the following slow motion... 1. a bird of prey 2. a greyhound race(take-off, mid-race, etc) 3. the sonic boom of a fighter jet breaking the sound barrier(i'm sure Dan could help arrange this one)
