Thank you!  Its amazing what a little white paint will do to make a pellet show up in a video! 

Great shooting and video!  What did you record it with?

Thank you!  The Camera is the Tactacam 5.0.

Thank you Randall!  I'm playing with the higher recording speeds on the Tacticam to see how slo I can go!

Cool! Gnarly Slomo!

Thanks Carter!  It's amazing how much recoil a PCP has when you slow it down like that!  It's also nice to see the pellet hit where I aim!   :P

How many FPS did you record that at Paul, and what is the maximum FPS?  Did you use any video editing software to slow it down even more?  What video editor do you use?  Thanks, Ken

Ken, that footage was recorded at 1080p at 120 FPS, the Tacticam will record at 240 FPS but only at 720p, so it's not quite as clear.  It will also do 4K at 60 FPS.  I use VideoPad on my Macbook Pro for editing. That video had the speed reduced from 100% to 4%, any lower at that speed and it starts getting too choppy.  I may be able to reducce the speed at 240 FPS even more.

Thanks, the action cam I bought does 240FPS at 1080 IIRC.  But might be 720 ???  Still waiting on the "cube" to arrive from aliexpress to start my DIY scopecam.

Seeing shots in real time then in slo-mo really shows what has occurred...very cool!

Hmm...  You bring up a good point.  maybe I should let the video run at regular speed first, then add the slo-mo portion for comparison!  The Critter Cam wasn't cooperating again yesterday, so I didn't get the overhead video this time.  The frame rate is so low from that camera, I can't slow it down at all without it looking like a series of still shots!  It runs at between 5 FPS and 15 FPS depending upon wifi connection speed!
