The Most Advanced High Speed Robot Used For Video Ever

Just when I thought I had seen it all I was sent this incredible video by one of our readers. The Marmalade, a special effects studio in Germany, has created an incredible high speed robot used to film precise moments during ultra high frame rate takes. The results look so perfect that I thought I was watching CGI at first. Even if you aren't into robots you will want to watch this video for the most stunning macro videography I've ever seen.

Here's another video with a few more clips:

I've seen a lot of posts on F-Stoppers that make me exclaim "Wow! That's cool!"  This was the first one that made me jump about while exclaiming "Holy shit! That's amazing!"

Beyond COOL!  This separates the men from the boys...  And for some reason I don't see a DIY equivalent anytime soon. ha! 


Mind. Blown.

i am in love....I am only 19 years old and I love advertising photography, recently I have started to work with video but not is advertising way, just because i didn't know how to do it and due to lack of needed equipment, but right now I now what I want to do! I want to create commercials like these!! I just can't believe that all this is up to me, whether I will or not become such an artist!

i wonder how much money they have invested in creating a robotic arm with custom software to control it for the work they do. The end result is beyond impressive.

Actually, it looks very much like robotic arms used in factories. They probably just adapted such a product for their needs.
