Vancouver engineer David Kronstein, aka Tesla500, decided to put his beautiful $3,000 Chronos high-speed camera to the test. After building a secure mount that would completely protect the camera, Kronstein then attached it to the blade of a modified lawn mower and put it into motion.
This experiment showed Kronstein how well the camera responded under stress while also capturing some pretty neat footage of the blade destroying a variety of objects.
This started out as a project to see what the camera could take, turns out it can take a lot of punishment! Spinning up to 1800RPM, with about 200G exerted continuously on the periphery of the camera, plus another 100-200G of shock when an impact occurs.
