Watch! Cheetah running at 1200fps in ultra-slow-mo – shot with phantom

by planetMitch3 Comments

An amazing video you have to watch! This is Tommy-T the Cheetah running at top speed and is filmed at 1200fps with a phantom camera speeding along side by the National Geographic team. There’s a behind-the-scenes video as well which really puts it all into perspective – oh, and there are at least 4 Canon EOS-1D X cameras included in the shoot – tho we don’t get to see the output from those DSLRs.

How many was the shutter speed ?

I watched this earlier on Vimeo. It seems sadly very unbalanced to me. The footage is amazing. I'm sure in the actual program it is amazing; the behind the scenes is very interesting - but the actual web video seems like the dullest possible presentation of the most amazing footage. (I think the BTS and footage should be one movie. The BTS should be twice as long. The first 2 minutes of footage should be cut - it's redundant and chasing the lure has drama. As someone able to have a first impression, that's my opinion. (Creators never get to have a first impression.))
