rolling shutter

That's the effect of a - but the timing needs to be pretty spot on!

Edit: another great example from The Slow Mo Guys

Edit 2: Wow, my first gold! Thank you kind stranger!

Wish i could pin this to the top of this thread, that cleared a lot of things up for me. Thanks man :)

EDIT : My wish came true, hehe.

Perfect timing, a couple milliseconds either side of that moment and it wouldn't have been like this.

We did it reddit!

I know right, websites say as little as 25ms would have led to a different shot.

OP did it with his wish!

Ok. Now my turn. I wish... I wish that... I will get PM's with doggo pictures. Edit: After 6 hours I will come back and do a review of the best photos i get. No bamboozle. Edit: I got about 50 PM's until now. (comment is 2 hours old) Edit: Post got removed. I already wrote the review. Now I wait so see if i get any more photos that i can add to it. (comment is 4 hours old) Edit: I stopped receiving photos so I decided to post it one hour earlier because I want everyone to see it when the RemindMeBot messages them. LINK

Just photoshop it.

What's it counting down to?

Inb4 - arrival of time travellers.

TIL people fight their crickets against each other.

Its a countdown to a cricket match, hehehe.

Imagine waking up there with noone around and just this timer. Doors closed.

Is this just an empty room with a timer? Pretty odd.

Reminded me of this

Reminded me of

So set shutter speed to higher than 40 and burst/continuous shooting mode to capture this?

Here's some eye bleach

Without this explanation, if I was the photographer of this I swear I'd be questioning reality. Although am I right that the rolling shutter is moving upwards here, (rather than down, as is suggested in the linked videos?) the bottom half seems to be earlier in time than the top....

Just now i realized in what i got into. Didnt knew reddit has that many dogs. I will still do it though!

No glare from the reflection

They're good dogs brent

It's moving downwards, the timer is counting down.

Not as fun as droopy prop: http://i.imgur.com/SqzJz.gif

Not as fun as droopy prop:

Probably easier to just video it and take a frame grab. Burst is typically around 5fps whereas video captures 30+fps at a lower res. Less chance of the change happening in between shots that way.

Any why is the time yellow in the reflection?

You bastard!

Creepy. I can't look at that again, it creeps me out too much.

Quick brown foxes don't need Photoshop

You can't go wrong with a subreddit dedicated to it: r/eyebleach

You can't go wrong with a subreddit dedicated to it:

*behind my bad it's counting down.

Extremely cool, most likely caused by delays in shutter time than delays caused by the light traveling further.

It's being downvoted by a bunch of idiots that don't understand the applicability of the links to the phenomenon. It's very typical of Reddit, and is why I don't consider opinions shared on Reddit to be valid (most of the time).

Camera captures the image in a line that rapidly sweeps from the top of the frame to the bottom of the frame. The time changed while it was midway through the sweep, making the two halves of the image inconsistent.

Condensed explanation:

The shutter of the camera starts opening at the top and the image is taken from the top, then by the time the shutter reaches the bottom,the clock has ticked over.

It's all happening in a fraction of a second.

Remindme! 6 Hours

Ah yeah, it must be yellow in both, but the top one has maxxed out the cameras sensor.

Shhhhh... slowly puts finger on OP's lips Let Reddit do its job.

at least you have 111+ days to get the fuck out of Dodge...

Edit: 2nd thought...that may be the worst part

The upside down

I can't believe you got me again

Not every part of the sensor is exposed at the same time. e.g.

If it was caused by a light delay from the reflection, the reflection would travel a further distance and be behind.

Good bot

It would have been super cool to get it switching days, hours, minutes, and seconds.

If you filmed at a high frame rate you would probably be able to get single frames of video fairly regularly. You could increase the chances by separating the counter from the reflection by as much as possible on the screen.

A day in the life-- well, the other morning, I wake up and I find a dog sniffin' at my wound. He's fully aroused - mind you - so I'm thinking "oh great, what does this jerk want?" Of course I know what he wants, he's looking at me right in the eyes, he does not have to say it - not that he could. [Starts sucking on a lemon] Urrggghhhh that is- that is tart! That is really tart. I mean does my scar look like a dog's vagina? You know, maybe, I don't know, I'm not going to sit here and try to get inside the mind of a dog! I mean that's God's work. Well, not that I believe in God, I don't. Not since that chinaman stole my kidney.

If I've got this right then it must actually be moving upwards because the image on the sensor is upside down.

So if we set up some mirrors and filmed a countdown and it's reflection would we be able to catch this effect on a regular basis?

I think it's just the camera that took the the pixel on the reflection first.

What if the young boys boy's wish is for an Apache Helicopter?

I think this is way cooler than the instant "Photoshop, duh" reaction I had.

each & every one

That's not how the joke works mate. You need two different options.

If there's one thing you can be sure of, it's that nothing is more powerful than a young boys wish. Except an Apache helicopter

Yeah, it captured 08 from the top of the image which was at the bottom of the sensor at the back of the camera. The rolling shutter was moving up the sensor. Take your condescension elsewhere.

Excellent video. Perfectly explained and demonstrated. Fascinating! Thanks!

This picture's spooky.

It's actually quite brutal
Rolling shutter. This camera captures images from top to bottom, so the lower half of an image will be captured ever so slightly later than the top half and there's thus a tiny, tiny margin for stuff like this to happen. Also what causes this

Basically just Saw

Except for Jasper. He's a dick

Yeah me too... when I first looked at the photo I thought it clearly had to be faked because otherwise it implies some kind of time travel or something else impossible... the video really clears it up though

Nice! This reminds me of this.

Nice! This reminds me of .

Tbh that sounds like more work

Why is this being downvoted?

Oh hell no

And so reddit discovered the rolling shutter effect again.

Send it to LIGO! There is a gravitational wave over there!

Good bot

You need to go to ELI5 to get optics explained to you

http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/primer/images/magnification/convexlens4.jpg

Thus going bottom to top from the sensors perspective corresponds with top to bottom of the image but it's which way the sensor roles that was the question here.

Sweet mother of god....

Bad human

Correct. You can see the difference in exposure in the "DAYS TO GO" section, where the blue background and lettering are nearly washed out above yet easily legible in the reflection.

The timer is counting down......

TIL cricket fights are actually a thing.

Which match?

It's not the fact that it's a reflection, it's just that the camera captures the image from the top down, and the number changed in the mean time.

Oh ok, cool. Didn't know that could happen.

Here is a with the explanation. It is quite interesting. These gravitational waves create a distorsion in time and space (really small) and they have actually measured them with that machine (LIGO)
