HDSLRs in 1000 FPS Glory!

The video below shows the true potential of HDSLRs; slow motion paired with stunning depth of field. Previously to capture something remotely close to the results shown in this video required one to rent an expensive high-speedPhantom camera or shoot rolls of film. However, this video was shot on the Canon 7D at 60FPS then stretched out to 1000FPSin After Effects using the plug-inTwixtor. Twixtor allows you to speed up and slow down footage by warping and interpolating frames of theoriginalsequence with stunning results! If you're shooting action sports sequences and still rolling costly film to get slow motion paired with the unrivaled depth of field film captures, HDSLRs are an affordable answer at a fraction of the cost!

Very cool, but you still don't get the whole frames and you lose a bit of the smoothness with this method. Also, it would probably take a good amount of render time before you saw these kinds of results. Nonetheless, it's exciting!

Very good point composite1. I've tried this method before with Adobe After Effects' frame blending and as soon as you get a highly motion blurred frame (which is why they shot this in a high shutter speed) or a lot of background elements, the effect breaks down rather quickly. Maybe this new plugin can render frames better than After Effects can, but it's good to know the limitations as well. I still gotta say: nothing beats a 1000 frame per second camera. It could only be to Canon's advantage to release a camera that can do that. Hopefully we'll see one in the future!
