Ten Minutes of Glorious Bullet Impacts at 1,000,000 FPS

I’m no warmonger, but I can think of no finer way to waste Friday afternoon than spending 10 minutes of the company’s time watching bullets striking various objects at one million frames per second. The footage is just totally unbelievable.

To reach far beyond typical high speed photography (we’re talking over 41,000 times the speed of traditional film), the footage was captured using dual Shimadzu HPV-1 cameras shooting at a scant 312×260 resolution. Regardless, the black and white tonal detail is still more than good enough to astound.[Kurzzeit]
