Smashing A Mirror In Slow Motion

Josh Welch

Hammer smashing mirrorHave you ever wondered what it would look like if you threw a hammer through a large glass mirror in slow motion? 

The Slow Mo Guys did, so Gav setup the recording equipment while Dan practiced his hammer throwing skills. 

Because glass breaks extremely quickly, Gav had to borrow the Phantom v2511 camera from Destin at Smarter Every Day and record at 120,000 frames per second (fps) and 512x320 pixels. 

You will definitely be surprised at the detail that this speed can capture, unfortunately it is at the expense of the resolution.
