    not really a good timing, just taking the exact frame of a video can do the job.

    Ultra slow-mo video. Standard video can`t capture events as fast as this.

    That might actually be an accurate statement.

    Yeah, looks like a frame from a high-speed camera rather than a photograph. Still pretty cool though.

    I don`t see why not, at least for maybe one frame which is all it takes

    I was in school with a kid who thought it was "Boom shake-shake-shake your bum".

    ...Just saying. :P

    A normal video camera could capture this, although it would be unlikely as it doesn`t film enough frames per second.

    "I don`t see why not, at least for maybe one frame which is all it takes"

    The difference being that regular video captures 1/24th of a second, including all movement. In fact, without the motion blur created, video tends to look choppy.

    Here`s an example of a stop motion animation of two dinosaurs, first without motion blur and then with motion blur added:

    shneeblefish: one frame the balloon would be inflated and the next frame it would be popped. it would be like a one-in-a-million chance for the half-way mark to be included in a frame in a normal camera

    just film with a super high framerate and isolate the frame between unpopped and popped.

    @angelmassb you said shopped and made no indication that you were being sarcastic or joking. He should not have call you an idiot but everything he said after that was right. Next time add :7 that to your post or a jk.

    If anything, this didn`t deserve to be posted at all - as others have stated, this is clearly a frame taken from a high speed camera, nothing cool about it.

    That said, there`s also been far better examples of these types of things posted here before as the actual video footage (slow motion of water balloons popping and stuff).

    They cheated! They popped the balloon first then had a ninja quickly throw a dart at it before it finished popping.

    Ninja`s can`t get you if you hide behind a popping balloon.

    Shokz... do you honestly thing someone didn`t realize that this was an image taken by a high-speed camera? Such images might be commonplace on the internet, but they are still interesting. I think it is interesting, and it would appear nearly everyone else agrees with me on that.

    Actually, this is not done with a high-speed camera. In fact, the camera is rather ordinary. The picture is taken in a dark room with a precisely timed high-speed strobe. The duration of the strobe flash in this and other similar pictures is considerably less than 1 millisecond. The shutter can be opened for quite some time before the shot and closed afterwards.

    What OldOllie said. Look up Harold Edgerton, as he was the pioneer in high speed photography (using strobe lighting).

    The rubber supposable moves faster than the speed of sound in air, which is what causes the pop sound.
