Get hypnotized by the super slo mo gunshot at 73,000 fps (VIDEO)


Sure you’ve seen super slo-mo cameras used with gunshots, but you haven’t seen one at 73,000 frames per second.

Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman from Discovery Channel’s Mythbusters decided to get some footage of handgun fired in super slo mo.

While yes, you have often seen footage from Edgerton style high-speed motion picture cameras which typically capture images at a rate of 2,000 or 4,000 frames per second, the one used by the Mythbusters was way faster, revealing pressure waves that undulate enough for Adam to go full geek.

You never go full geek.
