    A perfect image is determined by lighting, aperture and shutter-speed. A 4 millisecond shutter speed is worthless if all you get is an undeveloped image.

    I was referring to a camera with a very high frame rate. He could have filmed it, then chose which frame he wanted. And the lighting, and everything else would have been just as good.

    He doesn't know what a high speed camera is.

    Here is a picture I took of my son shooting a 9mm tracer just as it was getting dark. you never even see the muzzle flash with your eye it happens so fast. but this picture was shot at just the right fraction of a second.

    They require a lot of light. plus at 10000 frames per second, how much time would that take to find the right frame? Gimmee a break.

    The time sample is everything. Everything else is aliasing.
