Ok, last posting on cameras for a while. With the faster video cameras we wanted to test it 'in action' but just not on a chicken.
One of the boys was practicing his javalin throw for track... so, we did a test run.
The camera worked great. Having 60 fps made a BIG difference on the video - it was good to slow it down and very little was lost as the javalin flew. Good news for when it is on a bird... Here is a frame capture of the stick in-flight. The camera is small enough to have no effect on the stick or the thrower.
Our setup was simple. 1000 mile tape, camera, and javalin. Easy Peasy.
