femto-photography, Imaging at a trillion frames per second

How long before this makes its way into consumer cameras :laughing-smiley:

Lets hope it never does, I spend too much time processing pictures now but a trillion frames per second, I need a much bigger computer.:eek::D

Interesting. I agree with him that we have been obsessing about megapixels too long, time to move on. Not sure what all this will mean to average photographers, but the spin off potential is always there.

I'm going to predict that still photography as we know it now will be a thing of the past in about 10 years or less. Most cameras will record a short burst of a few to several thousand frames with such good resolution that you will be able to skim through the burst to find the one frame or short series of frames combined into one that you decide to process. A great way to get that perfectly timed shot.
I do that now with screen captures from video with my still cameras (with video option).

However Listen at 5.20. There is not enough light from one pulse. I think he's using a strobe effect sampling millions of pulses each at a slightly later time to give the impression of one pulse moving. Really It's shocked me so powerful and Informative Video.
