PCO Videos

  1. Fishing Kingfisher in Slow Motion II

    The pco.dimax HD is a high-speed, 12-bit CMOS camera ideal for a variety of slow-motion capture applications. In this video example, Rainer Bergomaz from Blue Paw Artists used one of these cameras with 1920 x 1440 pixel resolution @ 1060 frames/s to capture sequences of young kingfishers trying (successfully, in some instances) to catch fish.

  2. Magic Drops In Slow Motion

    Blue Paw Artists’ Rainer Bergomaz and Daniel Nimmervoll used the pco.dimax HD high-speed camera to capture water droplet sequences, showing that slow motion imagery is just as appealing aesthetically as it is scientifically.

  3. Owls In Slow Motion

    Sequences of landing owls filmed by Norbert Porta from Science Docu (www.sciencedocu.de) with a pco.dimax high speed CMOS Camera.

  4. Flying Macaw In Slow Motion

    Slow motion sequences of macaws in Guyana, filmed by Rainer Bergomaz from Blue Paw Artists.

  5. Ballistic Flight

    The Full HD pco.dimax high speed camera captures a Great Tit's (parus majur) approach and landing to a birdhouse, the bird's departure, and then its sudden return. During this return the flight looks a bit like a ballistic "flying" with wings folded.

  6. STS-135 Last Space Shuttle Start in Slow Motion

    The last space shuttle start July 2011 was recorded with 2x pco.dimax highspeed cameras at 200 frames/s at full resolution (2016 x 2016 pixel) by NASA.

  7. Video: Fast Manufacturing

    PCO does not only manufacture high speed cameras, but needs these cameras to have a proper look to the manufacturing process. The CNC - milling machine in this sequence had a revolution speed of 12000 revolutions per minute and an advancing speed of 1.4 mm / revolution.

  8. Video: Light Dump

    A burning light bulb hits the ground and breaks. At 5000 fps it takes some time in replay until the light dies.

  9. Video: It Breaks Not…

    A vase filled with water is falling down. It can be observed with 5500 frames per second. As this time the vase does not break, the oscillation of the glass by the impact can be also seen as oscillation in the water jet, which leaves the vase.

  10. Video: It Breaks…

    A vase filled with water is falling down. It can be observed with 5500 frames per second. Still the crack development is too fast.
