I enjoy watching lightning at night. Our new house gives an amazing view of the sky, but so far I have not had many opportunities to watch. Check out this slow motion video that includes a stepped leader creeping across the sky. I once saw a similar display at an Ozzy Osbourne concert in Kansas city. The band ended one of their songs right as the lightning display went over our heads. It was incredible!
I don’t know for sure. I honestly believe this isn’t a special high-speed camera myself, as the picture doesn’t have that low-contrast look, and based on my own sighting of an event. I would think a 60-120fps camera would do fine.
Very powerful images. Anyone have any idea what the camera speed is? some of the comments appear to indicate it’s way beyond popular photography capability.
