Hello all, I recently posted a highlight reel from two years of slow motion lightning video captured with a Chronos 1.4 at 1,500 FPS across the Great Plains & Midwest.

... highlight reel from two years of slow motion lightning ...

Beautiful. I've tried the same but where I live we rarely have clear skies with lightening - almost always socked in.

What lens did you use?

Hoooooolyyy sh..... this looks amazing.
Is this footage edited in some way? I also tried to record lightning but at 1,500 fps it doesn't look nearly as much detail and "slowness" .

Awesome footage!

Thank you!    It's challenging to get lightning shots to work well.   What you're really shooting with high speed is the initial "leaders" which are much dimmer than the main "return stroke" that other cameras are capturing.    These only tend to expose well within a couple of miles distance.

I revisited my ballistic gel tests.

This time I had an air rifle, crossbows and a CO2 Shotgun with home made 3d printed projectiles with me.

It's interesting how much further the little lead diabolos penetrate in comparison to the (medieval) crossbow bolt wich should still have more energy but beeing was fatter

Here is a video I made about my latest project that includes clips from the Chronos 1.4.  I mounted a Chronos in a rocket to capture some amazing footage.

The Chronos clips can be found at 00:05, 08:30 and 11:30 if you don't care to watch the rest of the video.

This year I've been shooting lightning with the 1.4 at 6,000 FPS.   (Actual framerate is 6,002 fps at 640 x 354).   The following is the best storm I've had for this purpose, with 17 captures at that setting.   I also had a 30fps camera recording simultaneously for most of them.

Hello everyone!

Well after a lot of learning, I finally feel confortable posting some of my vieos online. Started with animals, went to the zoo for some easy action, no tripod, holding camera in my hands, lots of things to adjust, but it's coming along... Hopefully one day I'll do it in the wild... Here's a playlist I put together, videos are just animals, no extra content added, speed ramp or any other stuff, just some music I like... Hummingbirds and bees are from a different location.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLEBUZZ2HLNOREy3W0MBP25jv2IpGaKiLC

I'm using mainly a Tamron 24-70 f2.8, some videos were taken with a Nikon 70-200 f2.8, for long time camera usage I got a Jackery portable power station (put it in my bag, keep camera powered on). Edited videos using Davince Resolve, 4k versions with Topaz Video Enhance...

Now I got to take all my science videos again using everything I learned, bummer I smashed a lot of old electronics already...

Very happy with my results so far, comparing the first videos I took, and these ones, now I can say I'm really up to the task...

I captured some air guns diabolos impacting  steel plates.

Never thought 40.000 FPS are still to slow to capture every detail

Depends on what you try to shoot with the Camera, i guess, but for Gun Stuff (also glass and some other things) you can end up needing plenty of fps to capture fine Details.

 For everyone who hasn't seen that, here is a Video shot at 1 Million FPS:

First time shooting (filming?) with guns (not real gun, but anyway), boy I need a 2.1 camera, 4500fps is way too much I think, can't seem to get the same sharpness as on 720p 1500fps... Need to test a few things first, but ain't happy for now...

https://youtu.be/LzrGhcsNA4E

Another thing I tried for the first time was the tilt shift lens, to get the gun and the target on focus... I managed to get a good angle one time, both subjects were focused, but it did not make to the final video (probably got overwritten). Happy with my first attempt using the lens though...

There are other videos from the same day, I'll redo some stuff, specially the melon vs bomb...

Lots of hummingbird action at our place this year. This is a short clip of a hummingbird attack:
