Always suspicious when some group announces an amazing new camera that's going to change everything... but don't provide any examples of the photo/footage it takes?

Found one - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snSIRJ2brEk

From what they're sharing it sounds like they've just refined the process used almost 6 years ago by these guys - just chroma-keying lasers to different color sensors on the CCD to run them in parallel. http://news.mit.edu/2011/trillion-fps-camera-1213 - 5 times the FPS but 1/100th the resolution as half a decade ago, nice work - oh also it's B&W now. I'm sure this is great for research but can't we just get a few pretty videos out of science so we can show people it's worthwhile

Except the videos from MIT looked amazing and the one from Lund looks like motherbrain on NES.

If the goal was to film "light" then they succeeded, this is probably not a general purpose slow-mo camera If you follow channels that do this for aesthetic reasons you will notice that already at 28k fps the resolution and light level fall extremely, they need basically full on sunlight to even film at those speeds, and it's still really dark.

So filming light that moves is actually a huge achievement and imo is interesting to watch. Would make it absolutely impractical for filming any event that you can't trigger 100% accurate though.

So happy I bought a good 8gb rx480 last year. Waiting another fucking year for Vega would have killed me.

Or you could have bought a modern card from a modern company and be good for another five years... But whatever.

Too bad the Mythbusters aren't around anymore. I'd love to see something blow up at 5 trillion FPS.

Yeah VEGA is coming so hard that AMD had to rebrand R4s to R5s to make... uh, what.. room in the inventory? Hey.. that actually makes some kind of sense....
