    Link: The Camera Flash Experiment - Over 700 people line the length of the Brooklyn Bridge and create a wave of camera flashes.

    Yeah, I think it would have been better if they all went off at the same time :)

    That wasn`t exactly a wave...just a bunch of random flashes barely noticeable from a distance thanks to the light already on the bridge. FAIL.

    This is utter poo. I expected what the title says, maybe the flashes happening in sequence like a WAVE or something, not a bunch of camera armed idiots taking snaps at random.

    I had hoped to see a wave of light from one end to the other. The result, however, is not surprising. In any group, there is a percentage of people that are too stupid follow direction or just want to f*uck things up because they think it`s funny.

    I have a feeling that the difference in each camera`s time to take the picture as well as those certain cameras that flash three or four times before the ACTUAL flash, had a lot to do with this not working out. Cool idea, but not followed through very well.

    The music tried to make this look successful, but, no, it sucked. I bet it was a high school that did this.

    Interesting project, though. They might have failed in the execution, but it`s worth another shot. Maybe someone should try it on the Jacques Cartier bridge in Montreal

    It looked like half of them didn`t have cameras and the people with cameras weren`t listening very well.

    They should have had a car drive super fast behind them, which would be their marker to snap the flash and thus creating a "wave".

    OR!

    Synchronize their watches to whatever time the square says it is...and on a given second, everyone at once.

    BUT!

    New Yorkers are New Yorkers for a reason... They don`t listen to direction, hence why only 700 people out of 8 million showed up for the lame-in-the-rain-fest.

    "The video doesn`t give this justice. I was there and it was awesome."

    Yeah you`re right, I didn`t think of that. Things don`t look as cool on camera as they so in real life. If you`ve ever been to the Eiffel Tower when they turned on the flashing lights, and then tried to take a picture of it, you`ll know what I mean. Or if you`ve taken a picture of a sunset.

    You`re doing it wrong.

    I expected something much better too, the camera flashes were way off. Should have taken more time for practice, and made sure EVERYONE was ready.

    If they had disposable cameras, line them up and take the pic that way.. that will be cool... Its easier to achieve, other than the people with digital cameras with flash delay.
