This is How a Gunshot Looks at 73,000 FPS

73,000 fps

You must have seen many slow motion videos in the past, but I bet, this video is something you would have imagined of. I was so wowed by this super slow motion video captured 73,000 frames per second, that I watched it at least 5 times on repeat mode.

These awesome guys Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman from Mythbusters, which is telecasted on Discovery Channel came together to find out how a bullet shot from a pistol would look like when captures through the Phantom v2010 high-speed camera. A good amount of light sources had to be used in order to capture this video clip at 73,000 FPS.

Here is an interesting fact: the video which has been captured at 73,000 FPS, if viewed in real time on 30 frames per second format, would take you about 40 minutes to watch the same.

The Discovery Channel writes “Adam Savage is nearly rendered speechless by incredible slomo footage that captures a bullet being fired at 73,000 frames per second. Shot at these speeds, the video reveals a dance of pressure and fire that would otherwise be missed by the unaided eye.”
