Cheetahs On The Edge
Sunday, 25 November 2012
However, you are about to see them in a way which has never been done before. This short film by Gregory Wilson is a combination of the resources of National Geographic and Cincinnati Zoo – using a Phantom camera they caught Cheetahs running at 1200 per second.
Not only that but they did it while driving at speed beside and in front of the cheetahs. In this way they captured every shade and degree of the big cat’s movement even when it was moving at its top speed of sixty miles per hour. The vast amount of frames per second then allowed the filmmakers to create one of the most breath-taking pieces of slow motion footage you are ever likely to see of a cheetah.
