Rainbow Paint on a Speaker - 12,500fps - The Slow Mo Guys

  • Published: 07 May 2018
  • Gav and Dan are back in the old garden. Using two cameras they've never used before, they revisit paint on a speaker. Both cameras were borrowed, but it ain't an ad or anything. This is the first video presented at 50fps playback. Because of the new high recording frame rate, we can afford to play a lot of the slow mo back at double speed. Why 50 instead of 60? All our videos were originally shot in PAL because we are british and that.


    Thanks to Hasselblad for lending the H6D 100c and thanks to Vision Research for lending the Phantom v2640.
