This camera might not look like much, however, this is an $80,000 USD Olympus high speed digital camera that shoots 150,000 FPS (frames per second) when a normal camera shoots only 24 FPS. We used this camera technology to breakdown techniques as clearly as possible.
We were only running 1,000 FPS and the detail literally blew us away. Above, Sam (Director of Photography) is setting up our first shot. In a lot of our high speed shots we used water or powder in order to show the intensity of the action. There is nothing better then seeing the 'sweat' beaten off your attackers face!
