While filming for the Speed Ledge review I shared yesterday, I captured this neat shot using the Sony NEX FS700 camera. The footage from which I snagged this image was captured at 960 frames per second. Not fast enough to watch the projectile travel (many rounds generate muzzle velocities in excess of 1,500 feet per second—over 1,000 miles per hour). What do you think, did I manage to capture the bullet in flight, or is it just a neat-looking effect of the gases just in front of the barrel glowing?
P.S. Happy Friday the 13th.
