Slow Motion

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.

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.

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.

Peugeot 3008 DKR Maxi: Desert Ballet

Peugeot 3008 DKR Maxi: Desert Ballet

Red Bull showcases Team Peugeot’s 2018 Dakar Rally vehicle. The Peugeot 3008 DKR Maxi is nearly 8″ wider than its predecessor for an even more stable ride. Watch it slide, slice and soar through sand and gravel in this sweet slow-motion video.

.50 Cal Sniper Rifle in Slow Motion

.50 Cal Sniper Rifle in Slow Motion

Destin of SmarterEveryDay lent The Slow Mo Guys a .50 caliber sniper rifle. Watch their bodies, faces and nearby objects react to the beastly weapon’s recoil. There’s also an amazing shot of the bullet coming out at 130,000fps.

How to Record Slow Motion Sounds

How to Record Slow Motion Sounds

We’ve featured many slow-mo videos, and while most of them were dubbed with music, some attempt to replicate the sounds of the object being recorded. SmarterEveryDay explains how they create these noises and match them up to the otherwise silent footage.

Fire Tornado Slow-mo

While working on the great Science Channel series Street Science, Darren Dyk of BeyondSlowMotion and Kuma Films teamed up to capture some amazing high-speed visuals of a fire tornado, including some fun footage of a toy car being flung through the blaze.

Whoosh Bottle Slow-mo

Whoosh Bottle Slow-mo

Warped Perception aimed his high-speed camera at a bottle lined with alcohol, then lit it so we could enjoy the fire inside in glorious slow motion. Then, he stepped things up to nitromethane – the same highly-explosive stuff used in dragsters. Kids, don’t try this at home.

Wrecking Ball Super Slow-Mo

Wrecking Ball Super Slow-Mo

To help promote the new season of The Grand Tour, The Slow Mo Guys got their hands on massive 4-ton wrecking ball, and turned it on a brick wall, then a selection of vehicles while they captured the carnage with a duo of Phantom high-speed cameras.

Destroying a Super Star Destroyer

Destroying a Super Star Destroyer

David Windestal and his pals love to destroy stuff with their insane rocket sled. Recently, they went through the trouble of building a replica of the now-discontinued 3152 piece LEGO Super Star Destroyer, and launching it down the rail with spectacular results.
