    Playing around with my new Casio EX-FH20 Digital Camera that has a neat high speed video mode. The frame sizes are pretty small but the quality in good light is really good for the price.

    Thought I'd share a video clip of an AirSoft 1911 style gas blowback pistol firing a couple of shots at 1000 frames per second.

    I like how the recoil of the slide sends the muzzle down since its mass is so much greater than the "bullet".

    Download the mp4 file from:

    I hope to try it with real guns some time soon.

    I just created the Windows Live "album" let me know if the link to share doesn't work as the instructions were pretty poor.

    Cool. That reverse recoil is trippy.

    Very cool. Are you using one of those Casio cameras that allows you to shoot at insane high frame per second rates?

    Yes, that is the one. EX-FH20 in particular. It outputs MJPEG which is very easy to edit on Linux or Windows -- didn't need to even open the CD that came with the camera.

    I just wish the resolution was better at 1000 fps. Its "HD" mode at 720x1280 P30 looks very good but 30fps is too slow for sports or "action". Its a pretty decent still camera too, but I really got it to play with the HD and high speed video.

    I thought about YouTube but I'd need to create an account there and I wouldn't be able to control the final encode format so no telling what it'd end up like. The Windows Live account I had already setup to get the Windows 7 RC1 trial download.
