With thanks again to Intellectual Ventures, for use of their Phantom V12, here's a bit of slow-motion video of a match striking. Playback speed varied to keep it to 30 seconds for a project I'm doing; the original was close to 7 1/2 minutes. Please excuse the clunky music. If anyone out there is a composer and wants to help me out, I'd love to hear from you -- click through to my flickr stream and contact me from there. :) Anyway, here's the video:
High-speed (near-)macro is neat, eh?
