I seriously can’t believe how awesome that is. The makers of that need to do a full length movie.

One of their other videos called Cardboard Gear Solid also has an awesome gun related intro, so make sure to check it out as well.

The same “15 yard sniper” from my previous post on the shooting of the iPhone, iPad, and iMac is back at it again with his Barrett M81A1:

If for nothing else, you need to watch the slow motion footage at 1:09.

Watching it in 1080p is a must!  Then back pull the slider back to watch the watermelon re-assemble.

Make sure you watch it in 720P

This video is from the same guy I blogged about a few days ago regarding Fake Guns And Video Editing. Make sure you watch the behind the scenes footage to see how to do it.

Pretty awesome stuff, I want to give light painting a try.

Portland’s Kamp Grizzly developed a steam-punk style pneumatic cupcake cannon and set the stage for eating frosty delights at 120psi. The blasting buffet was documented in at 700fps coming off the Phantom HD Gold.

Uh.. AWESOME!

Where does one sign up for something like this?  My cupcake intake has been frighteningly low lately. :P

I would have liked to see more of the actual cannon because it looks pretty badass with all the copper and what not. Steampunk has such fun design aspects to it.

Unsurprisingly, the camera that google uses in the slow motion video I recently posted is way better than this one.

From the description:

shot this with a Casio EX-F1 of my shooting my Browning 12 Gauge shotgun. The clips that are at the 4:5 aspect ratio were taken at 300fps. The other clips were filmed at 600fps. All of the footage is raw, no color grading/image adjustment was added. Sadly, the sun was on the left side of the gun, so everything on the right side is in shadow. I couldn’t turn my gun around and shoot the other way though.

Some of my thoughts on Digital SLRs:

The picture on the right, is of the camera that was used to take the footage.  Pretty interesting how it is a Digital SLR and not a conventional video camera.

From some recent “behind the scenes” footage I have seen, it seems that a lot of music videos are now being filmed with digital SLRs.  They offer manual focus, a plethora of manual adjustment, and high resolution, for much cheaper then you could get a conventional video camera with comparable features.  It even comes with a beautiful lens compared to most lenses you would get with video cameras in the same price range.

Check out the Casio Exilim EX-F1 at Amazon – HERE

At about 1/2 the price of the Canon 7D I am obsessed with someday getting, the Casio EX-F1 is likely a good value.

You just can’t beat slow motion video of shooting and blowing stuff up.
