Richard Ryan does it for science and Shark Week:

The always interesting behind the scenes:

Yea I know about physics, but I still love how water takes a fired bullet and is like “Uh.. NO”…. slows it right down, and hits the bottom of the pool.

I say it all the time, but Richard Ryan knows his way around a slow motion camera that’s for sure.  A few times he references another slow motion underwater shooting video his friend made which I posted a few weeks ago which you should check out if you already haven’t.

I’m trying to figure out how someone in California can stay that white!  I thought I was white, but Richard’s lack of a tan in the pool footage makes me look like Wesley Snipes.  haha and I wear sunscreen too!  SPF 60 on the head and neck area, and SPF 30 on my arms and legs when I’m outside.  I even smell like all beachy like a girl… yea it’s a side effect which caught me off guard at first but now I just embrace it.  I’m old and I have a girlfriend (my not-so-humble-glad-not-forever-alone brag #Jessica #<3), why should I care about having a manly outdoor recreational smell?  You young single guys can get skin cancer and cook outside smelling like Tom Selleck trying to holla at shawty in the fly two-piece who grabbed her purse and went for her pepper spray as soon as the words “Boo, I think you and me should…” came out of your skeevy little mouth.  Note that I used “Tom Selleck” on purpose just to throw you a curve ball so you’d have to google or ask your dad about him.

Supercavitation ammo which he talks about at the end of the video sounds badass!

Richard is wearing the AR-15 Builders Club t-shirt and the Keep Calm And Carry One t-shirts from ENDO Apparel in the vids.

You know he’s going to ride this acquisition until the wheels fall off:

  • Steel – meh
  • Light blubs – not bad
  • Paint – Ohhhhhhh YEaaaaaaaah

FPS-RussiaI gotta say I’m jealous of that camera.  If I had one I’d probably never get any work done because i’d be too busy filming useless crap.

Thoughts?

An Incredible look at high speed low drag videography:

High speed photography / videography are definitely relevant to my interests.  I’d like to get my hands on one of these for a day just to play around with!

10,000 FPS at 480p is damn impressive.  2.9 seconds though :/ It’s really too bad the buffer is so small, but I supposed that’s a limitation considering the processing power that is needed to dump that many frames every second to memory.  Seeing the lead fragments fly off the rifling when the bullet was in flight blew my mind.

Thoughts? Any of you guys ever play around with one of these?

Slow DEAGLE *duh da duh da da da da* take it eaaaaaaaaaaaaazzzy:

The videos are silent, so I recommend the theme music I embedded above to be started up before hand.

I was expecting more pinky rings and gold Rolex day-dates in the videos, but I suppose it’s hard out there for a pimp in today’s economy.

There are a couple other slow motion pistol videos on the khar arms youtube channel, but they aren’t of the deagle so who really cares.

Has this sold any of you on a deagle?  Or did you cringe seeing that 25lb. slide slowly go back on every shot like I did?

See this Russian T90 Tank Fire a 125mm shell at 18,000 fps, captured on a Photron camera:

Oh what I wouldn’t give for a slow-motion camera like that. Even something as simple as water dripping out of a tap looks amazing at 18000 fps.

I could watch stuff like that all day. Killer music too.

The artist’s name is Alexandre Farto  a.k.a. Vhils. *Insert Fart/explosive diarrhea joke here*
