Shutter speed can have an affect on what's being photographed; any movement could produce a blurred motion. But that's the thing... anything
moving in that shutter speed would be blurred.
In the videos used for Sci-Fi's show, there were parachuters and birds which were not blurred even though they also contained rods. Same thing with
the stunt flying ariplane, a family gathering, and one other (can't remember what this one was, though). The only thing in these videos that were
"blurred" were the rods. One of these videos was produced by a professional video editor... surely he would have known he had a wrong set-up. And
like the guy who first discovered the rods said "You can get blurred motion moving left to right, but not front to back", in reference to the rods
turning and looping away from the camera while still retaining their shape and measurements.
For a normal shutter speed, or whatever is used for video cameras, just how fast would something have to be going in order to produce a blurred
effect? In regards with Nascar, you'd have to be moving at 200+ MPH, correct? Any animal that we know of that can do that?
Surely with the video of the man parachuting into the cave and all the birds moving about, there could be no way to alter the speed of one object in
relation to the others. The birds flew about normally, the man fell normally, the rods, well... moved like rods.
Oh, another thing about their speed; the best way to view them is by using the slowest setting on your camera/camcorder, going by frame by frame...
so how fast would they be then?
At first, I too thought that it could be the "hairs" of lines associated with older film, but then I thought about it some more. Those hairs don't
But, I'm going to check out some more sites, go over Byrd's rebutle site, and see what else I can see...
