iPhone recording of a propeller


curious stroboscopic effect

You can talk about the technical aspects of how this recording came to be, but I just enjoy watching it. Via Tam & That Video Site.

Update January 2017 replaced missing video with similar one and removed dead link. This video was shot with a Nokia N95 instead of an iPhone, but it is about the same vintage.

Just how cool is that?

I didn't even know it had a vertical shutter!

I don't think digital cameras have shutters. I think we are seeing an artifact of the scanning speed, i.e. the speed at which the CCD array is scanned for to record the image. But that's just suposition on my part.
