Lecture 1: Introduction (31)

I was curious about how the "Bullet Through an Apple" picture was taken so I looked it up. Because you can't easily expose an analog camera for that short of a time, they took the picture by using a longer exposure in a dark room and flashed a light for a tiny fraction of a second. Has camera technology since advanced to the point where you could take a picture like this in a normally lit room?


@leoadberg -- great question! I'm not super sure, but I think this is achievable with super high framerate cameras e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OubvTOHWTms
