    Okay this is intended to show off the camera, but it is some great footage of shooting too!

    Not many videos bring a tear to my eye, but that one did.

    Oh... my....

    That video is beautiful.

    Heck of an expensive camera, though. Not for your average Joe. Did a search and they turned up between $50-150k depending on model... not including any of the accessories...

    For a camera that costs more than many houses, it does a fine job indeed!

    I like to see the muzzle flash develope. The shape is different with different guns...at least a little bit.


    I tried to catch,(with a 35mm film camera), a three shot burst of my brother in law's M-16. Made quiet a fire ball. Revolvers look cool too. Even though I've seen lots of these slo-mo vodeos...I just have to check out one when someone gives me the chance. Thanks for posting that one!

    I liked the part at the end where they showed a close up of the ejecting brass.

    Very cool!! I enjoyed seeing the differences as you ramped the camera up incrementally, the commentary was helpfull too. Thank you.

    Great video!

    Should put to bed all the discussions about heavier bullets shooting higher than light bullets due to "recoil" as the bullet moves down the barrel for autoloaders. This clearly shows noting happens to the slide/barrel until gas starts coming out the front.

    The above is true for revolvers because they have two recoils, first when the bullet leaves the cylinder and enters the barrel and the other (much larger) when the bullet exits the barrel. Its the first recoil that causes significant POA/POI change with bullet weights at short ranges (7-10) yards.

    Cool camera, wish I could afford one.

    Also interesting to watch the empty bounce around inside the ejection port -- should help understand how "limp wristing" can cause some people to have stovepipe problems with these small and powerful handguns. If the grip is not firm enough to keep the gun from following the empty, its pretty easy for the slide to catch the empty on its way forward causing a stovepipe jam.

    Good observation on brass bouncing around during ejection, and limp-wristing = stovepipe.
