Life in Slo Mo

I recently inherited Mary's old pocket camera, as she'd upgraded to a newer model. It's a Casio Exilim FC-100, which looks like any pocket digicam. It works a treat, once you get used to not having a view finder, and there are a lot of controls that make it really easy to use.

But it's got a hidden super power.

It's a high speed video camera, capable of filming at 1000fps. It's at a low resolution, but still... one thousand frames a second... That high speed sensor lets the camera do all sorts of fun things (giving it a really stable night mode for one thing!).

The sun was out at the weekend, and I took it into our friends' garden here in San Jose and videoed their fountain in action.

Here are two of the high speed videos I took that afternoon...
