Scientists Use Camera with Human-Like Vision to Capture 5,400 fps Video – Photography Article

A team of scientists from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH Zurich) have figured out how to capture super slow-motion footage using what’s called an “Event Camera.” That is: a camera that sees the world in a continuous stream of information, the way humans do.
