    put a banger in a cube of jelly and record that in slow motion. see what happens to the jelly at different cube sizes.

    maybe even put bangers in ice cubes and record that explosion.

    Would have been curious to hear the file size on the boosted frame rate this time, that always blows my mind.

      Im pretty sure that he said some of the file sizes can exceed 100 gigs for a single 4-5 second clip on the higher frame rates.

    Gav swore right there at the end, with his watch getting wet. Not sure if they still care about that or not.

    when they focused on the surface of the water it totally reminded me of the shock waves in Inside

    I know what will both look cool and get rid of the tank. Fire a rifle at the tank while it is full of water and film the impact.

      Shell it with an Abrams tank. Get some tank-on-tank action going. Go big or go home!

    that looked gorgeous. the fps was perfect enough that you could see the texture and just all the little details in that sphere of pressure and i love the flash of light just before the water rises up. its all beautifully framed. church2

    The fireball from the banger is turning the gunpowder into gas. The result is a very short duration, high pressure and high temperature zone. As the bubble expands, the gas rapidly cools (relatively speaking), and when the bubble collapses there is a brief moment where the residual gunpowder and any unspent oxidizer can reach the ignition temperature and you get a secondary flash. Also, much like a cavitation bubble from the screw of a ship, or inside a poorly primed pump, the force of the collapsing bubble can also generate very high energy bursts of light and heat.
