The miracle of flight: Ultra-high speed insect photography
From Ibycter: "This weekend we began work with a new high-speed camera, a Photron SA-5, with a wicked large (1024 x 1024 pixels) sensor capable of recording 7,500 frames per second (even higher speeds at lower resolution). This beastly machine is being used by Mike Hrabar and myself to describe some little-understood phenomena around insect locomotion and behavior, which will hopefully be incorporated into a future paper. The rental of this machine is pricey and the time when our study species is active is small so in the downtime we have been using it for all kinds of insect imaging for fun and education. I invite you to join me this week for High-Speed Insect Science."
I am so there.
