Here is what a gun firing a bullet looks like at 73,000 frames per second

'MythBusters ': Pistol Shot Recorded at 73,000 Frames Per Second

You think your camera is fast? It's safe to assume that even if you have a device from the higher end of the market, it probably doesn't shoot more than 120 frames per second, since the limit on most cameras is around 24, 30 or 60. Mythbusters got their hands on one that shoots at 73,000 frames per second. Still thinking your camera is fast?

What 73,000 frames per second means is extreme, organic slow motion that does not need to be tweaked with software that adds fake frames to simulate it. It's the real deal and hosts of the show Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage used it to film a gun firing a bullet.

The video shows many things that standard cameras are too slow to capture, such as the mushroom cloud that develops from the blast and other fragments following the bullet out of the muzzle. The Mythbusters were left speechless after looking at the footage that came out of the camera.
