Strike a match. The reaction from scrape to flame is almost instantaneous.
But capture the moment at 4,000 frames per second, close up and slow it down. Now you’ll see a reaction that’s beautiful, kind of gross and otherworldly at the same time.
At this many frames per second, the UltraSlo YouTube channel host said, “what you [usually] see in an instant, will take quite a while on screen.”
Take a look at the mesmerizing footage of a match burning as you’ve likely never seen it before:
“As you can see this is an extremely tight shot,” the UltraSlo video description read. “There was over 2,000 [watts] of light within 4 inches (10 CM) of the match with mirrors and reflectors too.”
