Watching popcorn popping at 10,000 frames per second

Popping Popcorn

The Slowmo Guys often find interesting things to capture on video and play back for us in super slow motion, but this one in particular caught our fancy because of the precision camerawork necessary to capture 10,000 frames per second. The corn was popping so fast that at 100x slower it simply wasn’t enough to capture the nuance of the interesting steam-powered explosion of a dried, popping piece of corn.

To solve this, they slowed it down even more to 400x. The results are pretty fifty.
