I had the opportunity to sit in on a session at Rite Media Group last week. http://http://ritemediagroup.com/services-2/. While I was there I had the opportunity to see camera engineers use “The Cinebot Robotic Camera” known as the worlds fastest camera. It has axel freedom, expandable tracks, precise repeatable movement, triggable actions and camera lens control.
I learned and watch the camera move at very rapid speeds, causing the axel to move up and down, side to side and upside down reverse angles to capture the targets movement. Footage recorded at high speeds will be slowed down and viewed in slow motion.
This camera has the ability to get up to full speed almost instantly, going from a standstill position to high-speed motion and back to a standstill position in fractions of a second. It can literally capture a falling object 1,000 frames per second in a crisp focus, which would be impossible by hand. Imagine a giant robotic arm with a camera on the end of being controlled by a computer.
The Bolt High Speed Cinebot is used for motion control for television and film, robotics for live shows and events and 3d import/export and encoding.
Persistence of vision refers to the optical illusion whereby multiple discrete images blend into a single image in the human mind and believed to be the explanation for motion perception in cinema and animated films.
The French brothers known as the Lumiere Brothers are noted for being the early pioneers of cinema, the processes mentioned above. By the early 1890’s the brothers had built business in manufacturing photographic plates, inspired by the exhibition of the Kinetoscope, a primitive motion-picture projector invented in 1892 by the Thomas Edison. http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEQeIRLxaM
Cinema photography has developed fast as the digital world advances. Using the Cinebot everything happens so fast and the amount of details captured in those fractions of a second are incredible.
