1 trillion frames Per Second Camera

Ramesh Raskar presents femto-photography, a new type of imaging so fast it visualizes the world one trillion frames per second, so detailed it shows light itself in motion. This technology may someday be used to build cameras that can look "around" corners or see inside the body without X-rays.

Bullet through Apple ~ 1964 by Harold E. Edgerton MIT. The now iconic image was taken with flash duration of about a millionth of a second using a specially built strobe. The .30 bullet was traveling at 2,800 feet per second.
