Favorite Friday Video: Technology and the Changing Sensations of Video
What would life be like lived at one-hundredth its usual pace? In the throes of life, the beauty of the everyday escapes us. Today, our perception of the world is contingent upon the technology and people who capture and disperse it. The incredible advances of the camera have made this all the more relevant.
Kudos to Vision Research, whose Phantom Flex – thanks to its 32GB internal RAM – captures HD footage at 1275 frames per second, 100x faster than a standard camera. Kudos also to Rule Boston Camera’s willingness to lend such an amazing piece of equipment to Variable, whose videographers somehow kept it safe from the harm of projectile pigments and liquids. This is an amazing video guys. Note to readers: Please watch with headphones.
