The most incredible lighting storm seen to date.
The result of chasing storms for a year with a Phantom Flex4K camera in the boot of his car, this footage was filmed across America by filmmaker Dustin Farrell.
“Lightning is like a snowflake. Every bolt is different. I learned that lightning varies greatly in speed. There are some incredible looking bolts that I captured that didn't make the cut because even at 1000fps they only lasted for one frame during playback. I also captured some lightning that appear computer generated it lasted so long on the screen.”
The Phantom Flex4K is a camera which set new benchmarks in slow motion and quality, recording at 1000 fps. To compare, you thought the iPhone X shot in super slow-mo. It records at 240 fps, so even the slowest lightning bolts look like a momentary flash of light. Slowed down to 1000 fps however, charged ions snake their way from clouds around the sky, eventually touching the earth and sending a brilliant white flash of energy through the bolt.
It’s mesmerizing to watch, and Dustin has just put together a highlights reel of his summer in 2017. Watch it below.
