We had a representative of High Speed imaging Inc. in the lab today to demonstrate some high speed cameras…So what did we record? Some blowflies of course!
Check out how these awesome flies take off:
We have used high speed cameras before, but this one was pretty impressive. This video was recorded at 4000 frames per second, and is slowed down to 30, so it is about 133 times slower than real life. No wonder they are so hard to catch!
Awesome, thank you for putting that up 🙂
That is awesome! Now I want one to play with…
You can come to our lab sometime! The equipment we have right now is much more modest in resolution and framerate though. I think we can do 1000 fps at some 320 X 240 pixels. Enough to answer some questions:

Thanks Dave! I forgot I was on the proxy!
