Anyone else seen this? Pretty cool. 
A guy has imitated the "bullet time" effect from The Matrix with 15 Go-Pro cameras.

Good stuff, but I think trying to keep the array stable rather than hand holding it would give a much better result. Some of it is a bit painful to watch because of how jittery it is...

Also, how can someone afford 15 freaking GoPro's ?

Agree on that, there are a couple of legs and arms which jump back and forth between the cameras.

I'm guessing if you are a business then 15 GoPro's are a tax write off....

Finally would be neat to see them spaced out a bit more, the shots of their mounting bars seem to have them close (but I'm sure they have thought of that already...). Getting the wide pan would be great

Hi - yes I also saw this (linked from Gizmodo I think). I believe the current issues arise from syncing the frames precisely on all cameras but there was a hint somewhere that GoPro may come out with something to assist this.
I wouldn't be surprised if the guys who have produced this own 2 or 3 cameras and then hired, begged & borrowed the rest of the cameras... but even if they bought them it'd be a lot less than purchasing DSLR's & lenses.
Hmmmm.... next big thing - 20 iPhones mounted in a semi-circle with wireless syncing.... oh yeah!




Cheers,
Mike

Not iPhones. Galaxy S IV's with Group Play. Oh yeah!




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.
