How the rolling shutter effect is generated


A flurry of photos and videos in recent weeks have demonstrated the bizarre result that occurs when a camera shutter moves more slowly than the object being photographed (see above video).  While the explanation made sense, the shapes generated didn't make sense to me until I viewed the video below.

Hat tip to Neatorama.

  1. Well, this certainly shows how different minds see the same thing and interpret it completely differently because the second video didn't help me understand what was going on in the first video at all (I assume the propeller wasn't throwing off an infinite quantity of boomerangs).

    So, we should all understand that the shiftless poor (victims of a society intent on oppressing them)look different to different people equally interested in ridding the world of victims (shiftless poor).
