    So if I punch someone and they dont see it coming does that mean they just need to adjust their frame rate ?

    Is not a true Captain Disillusion video without him being injured, right? But if it happened in EVERY SINGLE VIDEO then it would be predictable and...

    The original video title was Frame Rate, but a load of photography students who think they know better "encouraged" the change

    I’ve use a strobe light and flipped a toy gun and tried to catch it and failed. If we were cameras we wouldn’t be able to catch thrown things.

    The rpm of the helicopter blades are changing constantly dew to the collective pitch, wich means the fps of the camera must constantly be changing as well for the video to be true.

    "if you want to see this replicated" just point a potentiometer tuned strobe light at a ceiling fan.

    Just like using a timing light while timing an engine. The light flashes on the timing marks and you can see the marks as if the engine isn’t spinning.
