I think this is a 4D picture. Normally we take 2D pictures. The 3D is just asumed. But in this case i think the phone take a 4 dimentional picture. See the screen that draws a cube and see that you can see the shadow trougth the finger. The hand looks transparent.

Mods need to close this thread to save any further embarrassment.

For the final time: A camera can not take a picture of itself. Shutter speed is completely irrelevant. Moving the phone quickly to a different location (LOL) will not work. This is absurd. Either the picture was taken in front of a mirror or was taken with another phone.

I'm speechless.

Why does it have to flip out at the speed of light?

A simple experiment to recreate this example is to get any camera, spin it around yourself and take a quick second exposure of a object ahead of you.
You'll then see once the image comes out the object is defined (while the picture is distorted) as the camera has tried to focus in on it.

The same thing applies for this, as the guys lost his grip on the phone he's released the camera taking a picture, its done a revolution (taking a image of itself) before the shutter was closed again, and out came the picture of the phone taking a picture of itself.

This should be the entrance exam for any and all universities. It would totally simplify admissions.

Either the phone is taking photos of the future or the OP is wrong in her understanding of how the events unfolded. My guess is it's the latter.

Explanation is easy and obvious, before he took the picture the phone teleported to his hand so photons could bounce off of it and then teleported back so phone camera could capture said photons just in time. "Faster than speed of light" theory is not feasible because phone actually going back would disrupt photons that previously bounced off the phone. Only instantaneous teleportation could do the trick. Well, that, or the phone captured photons from da future.

I suggest you all accept my ingenious and superior explanation before you unwittingly enter the endless loophole of mind-numbing idiocy
.

Although, I have recorded a video camera which was recording the video while at the same time eating my own head because I was trying to leap on the other end of infinity.

Please..please..please... tell me you're joking *shakes head*
If not you really need to learn basic physics. What you're suggesting would break the known laws of physics. Ring CERN and tell them to turn the LHC off because you've managed to rewrite the standard model without it.
I despair

........what?


Please think about what you're saying. If you run forward REALLY fast and then immediately spin around, do you see yourself coming?

I give up..if you take off your conspiracy tin-foil hats off for a second, you'll see that trying out this method YOURSELF shows exactly what i'm saying.
Rather than spouting some cr-p about CERN or whatever which has no relevance whatsoever to what I'm saying before.

Ummm... nah..

What you're saying is completely wrong. There is NO way the phone can magically take a photo of it's own front.

Perhaps an image will demonstrate.



Now, if you ask me, this whole OP thing is a PHONEY.....

and wow either you're in on it, or they got you good!

There's nothing wrong in citing one's own opinion, everybody has one and has a right to express it freely. And what I said was in terms of 'maybe'. What bothers me is when certain people, rather than contributing anything of value, cry on other people's posts, when in fact this is just an online communication not a battle of who's got the most plausible explanation to an unexplainable event. Of course it could be hoax too, but nobody can prove anything, can you?

This is the most ridiculous thread I've seen on ATS I think, Apart from a few of Dan tanna's.....

How and why are people discussing this?


I did laugh at the title... truly comical

I too believe that another phone was used to take the photo.

OP, I believe your leg has been pulled.

Deny ignorance should be kept in mind when reading a thread containing posts that say spin the camera fast enough and it will take a picture of itself.

It. Is. Impossible.

LOL, you really must be joking, or you have a very slow working brain. I know, what effect you are referring to. Lets take an example. You use a digital camera and set the shutter speed on two seconds. You put the camera on a square table. The first second you just put the cam pointing to the north, the second after that you put him very fast to the south. You will have a picture of both sides of the house, but there wont be any camera on it. Cause the picture can only capture what is in front of the lens. Even if you move very fast, the lens can never ever see itself.

pjjjjuuuuwww

You better take of your tin head, cause its starting to damage your brains

No relevance? WHAT YOU'RE IMPLYING BREAKS THE KNOWN LAWS OF PHYSICS AND IS IMPOSSIBLE. Not 'Opinion', FACT!

Please, please tell me how the photons that are travelling in straight lines at the speed of light being emitted or reflected from the phone are being received by the sensor in the camera part of the phone on the opposite side?
Please tell me, we'd all like to hear and as I said before the guys at CERN would love to hear it too as you've just changed everything we know about the universe. I'm assuming you understand what a photon is and the fact it travels in a straight line, at the speed of light?

IT'S NOT POSSIBLE END OF STORY - This isn't a subject where it's open to an opinion on how it could be done in the manner described - IT CAN'T! I can't believe this is even being discussed still, anyone that can't grasp this simple and elementry situation really should be going to school rather than going on forums.

Your phone took a picture of itself because the light photons generated from pushing the camera button were traveling at normal speed and your phone somehow fell in the line of the last traveling photons sent during that particular picture capture allowing them to capture the image and transmitt the data captured after the fact that the camera button had been already pushed during the phone falling. Oh well my 3cents

I'm no photographic expert, but this is like trying to run really really fast then stop suddenly in a vain attempt to see the back of your head isn't it?

Impossible, but a creative prank gets a flag from me anytime.
