Cell phone pictures and videos.
« on: November 27, 2018, 05:21:00 PM »
Can anyone tell me if there is an app that goes on a Samsung iphone where you can video an airgun shooting and play it back very much slowed down.
Has to be simple to operate and not cost as much as the repaint of Buckingham Palace.

Hey Nova,

The frame rate required to actually capture the pellet in flight on video is quite high, There are some high end phones that will probably get there but they are in the $1500 + range really. You probably need 900+ frames per second.

Lots of airguns

Thank you Mintie. Sounds like it is off my wish list.
Following the pellet was one thought but the other was capturing the rifle movement on firing. Say suspended from two cords with an almost non contact trigger devise.

First tell me where you get a Samsung iphone???

iphones have a high frame rate on their default camera app, maybe 120 or 240 fps
(FRAMES per second, not feet per second... unless you put your phone down range...)

Samsung actual camera tech shits all over iphone, but i believe you need either non-proprietary firmware (cracked) or some kind of mekke app to direct access the hardware.

this isn't "high speed" by any modern sense of the word. but if you light it right (indirect, reflecting), and use copper coat pellets, you can pick up the movement even at 60fps (nokia, blackberry) once you slow it down on PC.

phone cameras, and software, are designed for taking selfies and photos of food on a plate, they are usually pretty crap when it comes to anything else.

Nova, I have a camera mount you can use to put a camera behind, and with a lower powered gun like the Daisy 953, I can use the slow motion function of my camera and you will get to see the pellet flight. It's not perfect, but quite interesting.
Not a fancy camera either.
I will try find some footage and post it. You may want to have  play.

Samsung Iphone. I thought they are all iphones, except mine.
Remember the days when you cranked the handle and the operator said
"Number please"
"Hello Mavis, can't remember the number but can you get me Jock Casey?"
"Through now"

If she wasn't busy she might say, "See you at the footy on Saturday."
