    There are such video cameras. Basically the way it works is:

    The lens lets light in, and basically shoots it at a prism in the middle of a 1M wide drum. The drum is spinning film around incredibly fast, and the prism "shoots" frames at the negs spinning around. So the light is projected on the prism, which projects incredible amounts of images at the same time, in a controlled sequence to make the video smooth.

    It's crazy because the flickering in that video is most likely the cycling of a 60 cycles per second incandescent bulb, it's insane that it can actually catch the light flicker :bowdown:

    :rofl: shows how much I know about guns.

    I remember watching it thinking, "how many machine guns did they have to fire to get that many bullets in the air" :mamoru: :hsugh:
