Nat Geo film a Cheetah at 1200fps

The Hobbitt was shot at 28fps. This clip, from Nat Geo's November edition on Cheetahs, was shot at 1200 fps, and the slow mo is awesome .. beautiful to watch.

It's a captive cheetah, chasing a toy .. which is sad enough .. but there's no denying how awesome it is to watch this creature move.

And the clip showing the setup to do this is cool, too. When they move from slow-mo to 'normal', the speed is ridiculous.

Cheers

Carl

That is crazy beautiful!

It's mind-boggling just watching the distance covered with each gait and then the speed at the end.

Great stuff! Thanks.

Spectacular. :)  It's insane watching its head stay completely level and focused as its body sprints at 60 mph.

The article in Natgeo described how certain joints are constructed differently, airways are different, etc., all of which allows them to reach those incredible speeds.

Thanks so much for that link !

I admit to being a "Cat Lover", and the bigger the better.

I'm downloading it right now, to watch on the "big screen" .
