I think everyone will agree that both high-speed photography and videography are amazing to look at. Seeing how individual drops from a splash of water dance through the air gives you a totally new perspective on things. Alas, high-speed video cameras–especially those that shoot at really insanely high framerates–are incredibly expensive. Which was motivation enough for the Edgertronic’s creator Mike Matter to go and invent an actually affordable high-speed camera. Affordable, though, is to be understood in relation to other high-speed cameras, such as the Phantom Flex. The Edgertronic will still set you back more that $5k. But in the world of high-speed cameras, that is still a real bargain.
