Slow Motion

Battery Bounce Test Slow-mo

Battery Bounce Test Slow-mo

Here’s a little life hack – if you drop an alkaline battery on its end, it should bounce higher if its depleted than when charged. Warped Perception decided to test this out in front of his slow-motion camera, to see how differently-charged batteries behave.

Magnetic Fields in Slow-motion

Magnetic Fields in Slow-motion

To show how easy it is to visualize magnetic fields, Magnetic Games tossed a super-strong neodymium magnet into a pile of magnetite sand sitting on an impromptu trampoline. As the magnet and particles fly through the air, the patterns emerge.

Rocket Igniter Slow-mo

Rocket Igniter Slow-mo

Warped Perception takes an up-close look at a highly critical, but underappreciated element of every rocket launch – the igniters which get the rocket fuel going. The result is some truly stunning slow-motion macro footage. Watch in 4K if you can.

Slow-mo Wind Tunnel Fun

Slow-mo Wind Tunnel Fun

The Slow Mo Guys managed to score some time inside of a full-scale wind tunnel to see how their bodies and everyday objects would behave in gusts up to 80 mph. Along the way, they turn a condom into a wind sock. Learn more about aerodynamics in part two.

Icelandic Geyser in Slo-mo

Icelandic Geyser in Slo-mo

The Slow Mo Guys introduce their new YouTube series Planet Slow Mo by heading to Iceland and flying one of their pricey Phantom Flex high speed cameras over a geyser, strapped to an industrial-strength drone. The color of the water as the geyser blows is stunning.

Slo-mo Pupil Dilation

Slo-mo Pupil Dilation

Gavin and Dan of The Slow Mo Guys turn their attention inwards, capturing detailed macro footage that shows how the pupil of a human eye reacts to light. Gav used one of those unique Laowa macro probe lenses to get right up to Dan’s peepers.

How Fast Does Glass Crack?

How Fast Does Glass Crack?

The Slow Mo Guys decided to see if they could determine the speed at which glass shatters. With the help of some specially-marked sheets of glass and a super slow-motion camera, they were able to answer the question at hand, while also revealing the way in which it cracks.

Killing Tires with Potholes

Killing Tires with Potholes

We have some of the world’s worst potholes here in Chicago. To see just what sort of torture such bad roads can subject your car to, Warped Perception took a stripped down Mercedes E-Class and watched how the suspension, tires, and other parts behave in 4K slow motion.

Cardistry on Fire

Cardistry on Fire

Photographer Darren Dyk teamed up with card wizard Sean O to create a cardistry video like none we’ve ever seen before. Everything you see here was captured using real fire, and Sean’s hands were coated with dish soap and butane while performing. Don’t try this at home.

Rainbow Jelly Tennis

Rainbow Jelly Tennis

A few years back, The Slow Mo Guys gave us a gleefully messy video involving Jell-O smashed with a tennis racket. Now, the duo is back with a much improved slow-mo camera, and some much more colorful Jell-O. The video the should be titled “How Gummy Worms Are Made.”

Tiny Gun in Slow-mo

Tiny Gun in Slow-mo

The Slow Mo Guys have previously fired off some very big guns to see every detail of how they work. This time, they went to the opposite extreme, shooting a teensy, 2″ long pinfire gun at 12,500 fps to observe the mini weapon at work. That poor Minifig is like a mini Buster.

Car vs. Giant Balloon Slow-mo

Car vs. Giant Balloon Slow-mo

“Don’t try this at home, this is stupd…” What happens when you drive a car towards a gigantic balloon at a high speed? Well, it doesn’t burst easily, but it does turn into a giant soccer ball, as the guys from Beyond the Press quickly learned.

Explosions in Slow-mo

Explosions in Slow-mo

(Loud) The Slow Mo Guys channel the Mythbusters with this extended clip, featuring a series of four wonderfully-satisfying explosions captured before the lenses of fancy Phantom high-speed cameras – at speeds up to 207,000 frames per second. Det cord FTW.

High Speed Camera Comparison

High Speed Camera Comparison

The Beyond the Press channel presents a completely non-scientific test of three very different cameras with the ability to capture slow-motion footage. See how the the $1000 Sony RX-100 and $3000 Chronos 1.4 stand up to the $180,000 Phantom v2512.

Simulating Super Slow-Mo

Simulating Super Slow-Mo

NVIDIA is working on algorithms which can turn regular speed video footage into smooth slow motion, by creating convincing – albeit simulated – frames in between which look extremely close to the real deal. They even slowed down The Slow Mo Guys.

Shattering a Record in Slow-Mo

Shattering a Record in Slow-Mo

A while back, The Slow Mo Guys spun a CD so fast that it shattered into thousands of pieces, resulting in a spectacular sight. Now they’re back to capture the same by spinning some vinyl records up to speed. We wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of that shrapnel.

Speaker Vibrations Ultra Slow-mo

Speaker Vibrations Ultra Slow-mo

The Slow Mo Guys covered a speaker with various colors of paint, then cranked up the volume to observe the patterns created in the liquid. Naturally, they captured the spectacle in front of the lens of their high-speed camera at 12,500 fps so we could enjoy every detail.

Moving Van vs Overpass Slow-mo

Moving Van vs Overpass Slow-mo

With the help of stunt driver Kyle Weishaar, The Slow Mo Guys decided to replicate a common accident – a too-tall truck running into a too-short overpass, and captured all the carnage in gory slow motion detail. When the sheet metal hits at speed, it looks like rippling cloth.

Paintball Shotguns in Slow-Mo

Paintball Shotguns in Slow-Mo

Gav and Dan toy about with a duo of custom-built rigs which can fire thousands of paintballs at a time, like pellets from a shotgun. They make a horrible mess, and look awesome in slow motion – especially that color mixing face-to-face shot at the end.

OK Go: One Moment of Math

OK Go: One Moment of Math

OK Go lead singer Damian Kulash takes us behind the scenes and inside the precision math and preparation which go into the creation of their music videos – in this case looking at the precision timed slow-motion mayhem of 2016’s clip The One Moment.

Slow-mo Paint Blast

Slow-mo Paint Blast

The Slow Mo Guys subjected themselves to a massive blast of paint, transforming the outlines of their bodies into a work of modern art. The 4K footage is quite spectacular as the colorful paints spray out and mix together on the way towards their intended targets.

Splitting Bullets in 4K Slow-mo

Splitting Bullets in 4K Slow-mo

For their latest experiment, The Slow Mo Guys perfectly lined up an axe with the barrel of a gun, and fired a bullet at it so we could see what it looks like slowed down. It’s cool, but it’s the custom two-way axe they built that produces truly satisfying results.

Waterballet

Waterballet

Waterballet creates incredible slow-motion macro videos using colored inks and water, along with ambient musical tracks to accompany the mesmerizing footage. The scenes look like weather fronts moving in on an alien landscape. More on Vimeo.

Slow Motion Ball Drop

Slow Motion Ball Drop

For the latest episode of The Super Slow Show, Gav and Dan simply dropped a bunch of objects from a crane, and captured them hitting the ground in super slow motion. Come for the flood of exploding water balloons, stay for the 10,000 bouncy balls.

Biopixel Slow-mo Nature Reel

Biopixel Slow-mo Nature Reel

Turn away if you don’t want to animals eating other animals. Otherwise, tune in now and watch a sample of the incredible slow-motion footage captured by nature photographers Biopixel in front of the lens of their Phantom Flex4K high-speed camera.

Full-Auto Tennis Ball Cannon

Full-Auto Tennis Ball Cannon

The Beyond the Press channel took a powerful Gardner Denver air compressor and connected it up to a simple rig they built for firing tennis balls. It isn’t particularly accurate, but we still wouldn’t want to be on the business end of this thing. Test firing starts at 4:15, but it gets better.

Water Jet Hamster Ball

Water Jet Hamster Ball

“I like being inside strange things.” The Slow Mo Guys Dan Grunchy gets packed inside of a giant inflatable ball, then launched into the air using a bunch of powerful water jets. From the outside, it really does look like some kind of out-of-control tentacled monster.

The Super Slow Show

The Super Slow Show

The Slow Mo Guys kicked off a new 12-part YouTube Originals series with a bigger budget than their standard backyard set offers them. The first few episodes are live now, including a look at what it’s like to run through a wall or a pane of glass in slow-motion.

Bullet vs. Bulletproof Window

Bullet vs. Bulletproof Window

Destin from Smarter Every Day teamed up with Gav and Dan from The Slow Mo Guys to see what exactly happens when a bullet hits a piece of bulletproof acrylic, both with a bullet that can’t make it through, and then with a .50 cal that can. Watch The Slow Mo Guys’ video here.

Pneumatic Needle Gun vs Stuff

Pneumatic Needle Gun vs Stuff

The Beyond the Press channel is always on the hunt for ways to destroy things that don’t involve using their famed hydraulic press. Here they punish a bunch of stuff with a pneumatic needle gun, a device that looks like a deep tissue massager for masochists.

How TVs Work in Slow-motion

How TVs Work in Slow-motion

The Slow Mo Guys turn their attention to the various ways in which television display screens trick our eyes into thinking we’re seeing motion, when in fact they’re either painting images line-by-line, or rapidly flickering between still images. They also fake us out with color.
