Javalin Camera

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.
