    You guys have done several videos on bullet impacts, firearm actions and the like. There's one video that would answer a long standing question in the air gun community: How much does the barrel of a spring-piston air rifle move before the pellet exits the barrel? The internal functioning of these air guns results in recoil in two directions over time. The accuracy of the air rifle is highly dependant on how it is held by the shooter as all the recoil motions are affected. Some serious high-speed camera video would put an end to a lot of hearsay and folklore. Thanks

    I love this so much. It's amazing how the film just BARELY stops moving by the time the shutter exposes it again. And that probe lens! I've been wanting one for a while but can't justify the purchase yet. Someday!

    Hey Gav and Dan! Can you do a video on "rib vortices" under breaking waves? It makes for some awesome slow mo footage! See for an example:

    If you're looking for video ideas, the inside of a DLP projector is pretty unreal and might make a nice cheap project, assuming you have macro lenses. It's got millions of tiny mirrors on a 2 inch surface that all move up to dozens of times per frame to make the color pixels. I'd be interested in seeing it in slow mo. There's one guy who's done it with strobe lights but I'd be curious to see it in fluid motion.

    You guys should do a video of shooting or blowing up a propane tank. I think it would be a cool yet experimental video will for example when it blows up with the propane ignite or will the gases just escape into the air

    Hi Gav, great episode with some unique detail, cheers.
    i was wondering if you had ever thought of doing the following slow motion...
    1. a bird of prey
    2. a greyhound race(take-off, mid-race, etc)
    3. the sonic boom of a fighter jet breaking the sound barrier(i'm sure Dan could help arrange this one)

    I've been an analogue motion film camera technician for over 35 years now and this is by far the best explanation of how an analogue motion picture camera works. My hats off to Gav in not only his spot-on understanding of the machanics of it all but for so perfectly using his digital and optical tools and skills to capture, edit and deliver that explanation!
