how bad is this ? it was pulled by the moderator krys-o from the off topic fmu message board and there is a thread now arguing for and again it. some think its funny others dont. some find it offensive and some dont. with the success of barber shop one and two and now the beauty shop, what up ? those were black projects and this looks like white boy stuff to me. its appropriately critical of institutionally segregated mid century america and burns brother hokey white bread style exhibited in the jazz, civil war and baseball docs. but crosses the line with some n bomb and stereotype transgressions.

Okay, it only shoots in monochrome at a size of 312 x 260 pixels, and as such, I guess, isn't really meant for cinematic purposes, but this camera from Shimadzu can shoot one million frames per second. $205,000.

There are 3 links to video clips at the engadet post that were shot between 8,000 and 10,000 frames per second. Wow. I want to see one at a million frames per second please.
