It seems that anything shot using the Phantom high-speed camera looks amazing, and that’s more than true with the National Geographic/Cincinnati Zoo collaboration on cheetahs. Simply filming cheetahs running in a straight line, the Phantom slows that incredible speed down using a 1200 frames per second shutter.
With this fantastic slow motion, you can really get a sense for how the cheetah runs such amazing speeds.
