When a Camera’s Frame Rate is Synced to a Bird’s Wings…

There are quiet a few videos online showing how helicopters can look like they’re magically floating when their rotors are synced with a camera’s frame rate. But here’s a new video showing something we’ve never seen before: a floating bird.

YouTuber Ginger Beard shared this home security video that captured a bird flying by and taking a look at the camera. But because the camera’s frame rate is perfectly synced to the flapping wings of the bird, the wings are only captured while they’re in a single position. This makes the bird look like it’s magically floating around in front of the camera without flapping its wings at all.

“This is the HIKVISION DS-2CD2342WD-I,” Ginger Beard writes. “I have it set to max resolution at 2688×1520 and the video was captured at 20fps. Pretty happy with it, floaty bird aside.?”
