Ever wondered what a Nikon D4 shooting in 10 fps burst mode looks like in super slow motion? Watch this video to see it in action.
Watch the video below to see just how amazing the engineering behind a modern professional DSLR is. The footage, recorded at 1920 frames per second by YouTube user krnabrnydziobak using a Phantom high speed video camera, shows the precise mechanical movements inside a Nikon D4‘s mirrorbox while it’s firing away at 10 frames per second.
Notice the smaller secondary mirror behind the primary mirror – this reflects light to the autofocus sensors, which are housed below the mirrorbox – and the amount of vibration in the shutter blades as well as mirror flap, which is only noticeable at these speeds. Very impressive stuff.
