I wonder if they are shooting through steel?? If so, it ruins all the action movies out there.

That's incredibly mesmerising!

You sure about that fps rate, though?

That's what it says on the video and on the YouTube page. Since fast bullets travel at over 1,000 MPH I would assume the FPS has to be very, very fast to capture the impacts with that kind of detail.

I say it ruines all action movies out there anyway, especially ones with slow motion bullets, where the background characters seem to move in slow motion too. If you speed things up proportionally those characters must be moving at like 500 mph or something.

Inelegant use of watermark.

If it's too elegant, it might get too easy to steal

Some of those plates are aluminum, others are steel, and some of it hardened steel/armored.

Those "flowering" specialty bullets around the 8min mark are pretty interesting.
The glass fractures were cool. Would have liked to have seen more of those.

They exist. I think one of Phantoms can do 1 million fps.

A midrange phantom can do 5600 fps. A high end one about 7800 I think (from memory)

You can however use advanced interpolation to go as far as you want as long as you have sufficient base frames.
