    Why replace anything that still works and does what you need it to do? Throwaway culture and always a must have to get the newest is a plague upon this earth. Change your way of thinking so well done guys. Especially in the USclip community everywhere you see always the newest and best but you rock your 7D and it gets amazing footage

    this would be an excellent video to show people who don't understand high speed sync with a flash.

    This video has explained a lot. People talk about shutter and shutter speed but no one has explained it this well. Before this video I never knew how a camera shutter worked?
    This is the best video! Well done!👍

    The shutter only goes top to bottom in your shots, how does it get back up?
    Does it just return back up after the photo, if so that would be a stupid idea, because you could double the framerate of the camera just by pulling the data from the sensor on the way up.

    All of this could have been done without having to look at his face while he explains it. A well-conceived video ruined by a high degree of egomania and narcissism.

    And if I record a video, how can I see the image through the LCD screen? The camera can't use it's mirror, can it?

    I've never noticed the diagonal skew of objects filmed from a moving camera before, now that I've watched this video I notice it all the time in low frame rate videos.

    Between this video and How to Make Everything, I have learned so much about cameras and photography.
    Can you do a follow up or a little add-on showing the global shutter action? I would love to know how it works. Thanks!

    Hey Slomoguys i have an idea:
    You can film a slomo camera with an slomo camera
    So start the first and then the other.
    First cam.📽 / / / / / /
    Sec. cam.📽/ / / / / /
    /=one cut on a cam.

    Wow. About that object-shadow difference, it reminds me of all those pictures with people near a mirror where they're either facing another way or making a different face than the mirror, so a lot of those pictures are in articals and lists about ghosts and spirits... This explains a lot :o
