Slow Mo Guys

The Slow Mo Guys test it out:

Nothing beats the slow motion shooting footage these guys put out.  The commentary and thought process they go through is always entertaining too.

The shot they got at around 12:00 where the bullet slows down so much it lightly bounces off the glass pane is so cool.  The last bit of footage they get from the end looking at the shot is nuts too 😲.

That’s funny he mentioned the Korn – Freak on a leash music video, I was just thinking about that video and the bullet the other day.  Embedded below if you’re a yung whipper snapper and don’t know it:

The Slow Mo Guys push the frame rate up to 1 MILLION in this video:

Amazing how far those cameras have come.  10,000 fps was considered so good back when he made a similar video 11 years ago. I bet in another decade we’ll be able to see 1million fps (or more) at 4k resolution.

Looks like that Phantom TMX 7510 they’re using in this vid is worth over $100,000. I always find it dumb when places are cagey about pricing. I know it’s probably part of their sales funnel, but I can only imagine how many tire kickers they get.. who are thinking the camera is probably a few thousand dollars max (because they didn’t even do an ounce of research). The whole “if you have to ask how much, then you can’t afford it” thing is so cringe and tiresome. I’m actually surprised companies do that at all anymore, with the way the world is now with wealth. Don’t even try to tell me some bitcoin bazillionaire wouldn’t see this EGG AT 1 MILLION FPS vid, hit up the phantom site… see the camera is “only” $XXX,XXX , then hit the buy now button (if there actually was one) and take a few cool videos of his vanity breed dog running in the wind before getting bored and throwing the camera in a closet and forgetting about it.

I studied the blade for decades, and they have the AUDACITY to dull its edge with pellets.  Very disrespectful:

This video was incredibly anticlimactic… but I suppose that’s what you get when you use a pellet gun.

I always think the “Gav” on his lab coat says “Gay”.. then I go “he he he he” to myself.

I wonder how much SOG paid them for using their knife and for plugging it at the start?

Thoughts (if you have any)? I wonder what the new “high speed camera” will be… by that I mean the new trend. I really thought quadcopter footage would have caught on more than it has seemed to. I’m also wondering if you could mount a high speed camera on a quadcopter and program a flight path in it somehow then get a sick moving slow motion shot.

SlowMoGuys killing some melons:

Shooting melons just never gets old.

Did this guy move to the USA for good now?  I know him and his channel buddy came for a visit a while back to do a video or two.

<– I’m just going to shamelessly plug my NFA Tax t-shirt right now since there happens to be a suppressor in the video haha.  It’s back in stock currently in all sizes.

The Slow Mo Guys took a vacation from their oppressive country and got a taste of ‘Merica:

Mmmmm that 3rd receiver pin.  Really great footage… I like the audio too.

Assault-Rifle-Because-I-Am-BlackWow that mag dump really tossed the little guy around.
