Carrots in a Blender at 600FPS

Last week I picked up the Casio EX-F1, a prosumer digital camera that also happens to shoot video at a max of 1200FPS. This is a first for easily-available cameras (I picked mine up at London Drugs), and definitely a first for it’s pricerange (it’ll set you back $999.90). I returned the camera, but before I did I shot a LOT of good video. You’ll be seeing more over the next few weeks. First video after the jump.

The first clip I want to show you is carrots in a blender at 600FPS, which I shot The resolution is atrocious (but still double the quality of 1200FPS). Set to 19 Ghosts III by NIN:

Here is something else shot on the same camera. Mostly shot at 300FPS, this piece really showcases what a little slow motion can do for every day events. I shot something like this for saskatoon, not nearly as good, but I’ll toss it up here once it’s edited.

Set to Numb by U2:

    For the NYC footage, I’m thinking that music from Koyaanisqatsi would fit. Maybe even “The Grid” …

    So you bought a camera, used it a lot (your words) then returned it and you don’t see anything wrong with that? The videos are cool but knowing you basically stole them takes the pleasure out of it for me. Get some ethics man!

  4. Hey Jerry,

    Thanks for the frank comment. Although I initially bought the camera, along with the Canon T1I and another Casio high speed camera (a lower quality model), I settled on the Canon. I purchased them so I could try each out and find which was the best fit for me. I was up front with the people at London Drugs about this (they were wondering why I was buying 3 cameras) and they had no problem with that. I assume you don’t have a problem with that?

  5. Excellent point, terrific website. Look, did you all read about World of Warcraft looking to utilize Real ID on the forum? I guess they became aware that that is no way to win at wow, because they reversed the decision. Now we can all return to playing wow without worrying about compromised privacy. And they can return to focusing on Diablo. BooYAH!

  12. I had a rather hard time cnsioohg just one type of physician I would want to work for. So many of them fascinate me, and with me not really going into any medical field other than support, I never gave this any thought in the past. After reading the list, I am more favorable of working for a neonatologist. It is difficult to think about how neonatologist physicians sometimes have the most difficult job in the world, but I can only imagine how amazing it would be to be a part of saving a baby’s life. I had a coworker once whose baby was born at 36 weeks, and her baby had a lot of heart and lung problems. There were concerns about whether or not they would ever fully develop once she had him, but after many months in the NICU, and many scares that happened during it, the doctors were able to save him and he is now a very healthy 5 year old. It is because of that I have a higher interest in the neonatologist field.I hate to say which type of physician I would care less to work for, and it is because I worry that many will take it the wrong way. When I was 16, I used to help my mom at an assisted living home as a caregiver. We would get to work at 7:00 A.M. every morning to prepare breakfast for four of the elderly men and women that we were caring for. We would then make sure that all bedding was changed, rooms were cleaned, meals were prepared, and appointments were handled. We worked 12 hour days, and they were always grueling. The owner of the home made sure that everyone had their medicine and made it to their doctor appointments on time. However, she was more worried about getting paid for her services than actually helping the elderly. She would yell at them if they did something wrong, and even call them terrible names. My mom reported her and we both quit our job, but it has always left a sting in my heart since then. It is because of my experience with that situation that I do not think I could ever work for a gerontologist. I know that the situations would be much different, but ever since my experience with caring for elderly individuals it is very hard for me to think about assisting a physician in geriatrics because I worry that someone else might treat the elderly in the same way the owner of the home did. I am a firm believer that the elderly deserve the ultimate care and comfort when going through any treatment and aging in general, but I do not think I could ever work in that environment again.
