Watching Tim Lincecum Pitch In Super Slow Motion Is Like, Totally Far Out, Man
This video (via Big League Stew), shows what San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Tim Lincecum’s unique windup looks like when filmed at 1,000 frames per second, capturing (courtesy of “Red Bull Moments”) “his delivery in ultra slow motion using a Phantom Flex High Speed digital camera system.”
Watching that made me realize how pretty much anything looks a helluva lot cooler when filmed in this unique way. I can only imagine how far out it would look if someone were to film me in this manner when I am doing my thing while blogging. Seriously. Do you have any idea how many distinctly important, precision-type movements go into typing up a post for a sports blog? The mind boggles. Sure, uploading a bunch of photos of whichever gal is the Flavor of the Week or a video of some moron running out onto a baseball field looks easy, but when analyzed by breaking it down into slow motion using a Phantom Flex High Speed digital camera system, I’m sure it would illustrate it is a pretty complex business.
I’m waiting, Red Bull. Don’t go and ignore me and harsh my mellow, Red Bull dudes.
