We've compiled all of our 1000fps slow motion footage shot on the Sony Cyber-Shot RX10 II and put it on one page
Ok, we have to admit that we got a little bit carried away with shooting at 1000fps with the Sony Cyber-Shot RX10, and to be honest we probably aren’t quite done yet!
From bees and lighters, to watering the garden, here are some of the videos we have shot so far using the impressive High Frame Rate (HFR) mode on the RX10 II. All of the footage was shot at 1000fps, so very roughly, 1sec in real time is slowed down to about 40secs – keep that in mind when you are watching the above videos. Every 40secs of video footage took place in just a single second. So, for example, the video of the lilies being watered maybe 50 seconds long, but take out the beginning and end titles and you’ll see that the actually footage takes place over less than a single second in real time.
There are a few tricks to learn when using the slow motion mode of the RX10 II – it takes a couple of goes to get your head around how it works. However, once you have worked it out, it is really simple to take slow motion video, and it is incredibly addictive.
As you can see, it’s fascinating to see the simplest of things slowed down to such a speed, and we’re still thinking of more things to shoot. So whilst we get our thinking caps and come up with some ideas for new footage, enjoy the clips above. Don’t forget to bookmark this page to check back for more footage in the coming weeks.
