    * has a camera worth thousands
    * is sponsored by a huge corporation that provides a very expensive TV
    * can't afford a proper map so prints out a shoddy one by himself

    That's proper youtubing :D

    the world being reflected multiple times in the crown with the droplet just about to separate would make a good image for a science fiction book cover if the story covered creating parallel worlds

    Hi Guys! Great video. Here's a thought: years ago I remember seeing some high speed stills of a water drop falling into water, they used a red water drop falling into clear water, interesting bit was that the drop being ejected back up was the same red drop that fell in.

    A smaller aperture also brings the map in the background more into focus. I think it would have been much better to adjust the distance of the camera to the drop and the drop to the map, so both are in focus at the same time even if with a larger aperture. That way you also don't have as much of a problem with the light.
    Depends on what kinds of a shot you want of course. But I think it would have looked pretty cool if you couldn't make out the map in the background and it just shows up out of nowhere in the drop.

    Kind of dropping this in here randomly, as I don't have contact details. I recently showed a couple of your super slo-mo vids to a friend, who unbeknownst to me is a film and television lighting consultant. His comment was, "Phantoms, yeah worked with them - very clever, very good. Now, if you are shooting at such a stupidly high frame-rate... how do you light it?! You certialny don't want a light flickering on and off at 50 or 60 Hz AC. Fun problem for you to think about." Guys, would this make a possible vid all about how to correctly light very high frame-rate shots? I'd be fascinated, personally. My personal guess would be either always use natural light, or go with some kind of DC illumination, but I know nothing!

    I’m just getting settled in with 4K/UHD on our main tv’s. Here you are showing off this 8K video. I’ll have to pass until cinematic media is readily available. Most popular titles come 4K/UHD so time is now to grab a decent 4K machine. Or ride it out once 8K hits. 4K prices will drop.
