TV: April 15 "Time Warp" with Pappy Dog and Poi Dog
« on: April 09, 2009, 10:58:09 AM »
Hey guys,

I received a KIL email announcement that Nick "Pappy Dog" and Kalani "Poi Dog" are on a show called "Time Warp."  Nick's episode is apparently on Wed April 15 on the Discovery channel. 

I watched the first episodes this week and saw the preview of a stick striking a belly in super slow motion.  The crux of the show is a 1000 frames/second (could be more, please correct) camera that slows down events by a factor of about 10 (according to cameramen on show.  The numbers don't match up, so I think they made adjust the frame rate according to the duration of the event. 1000 fps /30 fps = 33x and 1000/60 fps = 16x)

Yes their math is wonky.

SA1 can go 1 million frames per second but the resolution is horrible. Fastest actually used is 30,000 fps. Average is 5000 fps but go to 20,000 on a regular basis.

SA2 goes 10,000 fps but usually set at 1000-5000.

Phantom goes 1000 fps. Matt doesn't like to use it.

Fastec cube cams do 750 fps at decent quality.

This is a little better explanation

Nick

Woof All:

Pappy put the producers in touch with me.  This thread is an off-shoot.

Pappy, Poi, and Tennessee, did an awesome job on the Time Warp show on Discovery Channel tonight. You stoled the show!   :evil:

Congratulations to Nick, Kalani and Erik.  What a great show.  The human endurance contests always deserve a lot of man points.  Kalani's belly strike slow motion video is destined to be an Internet reference classic.
