It feels like it gets harder to tell reality from CGI every day. This video of an F-22 Raptor in slow-motion is a good example of that.
Filmmaker Christopher Vasquez captured the iconic F-22 performing a series of high-speed aerial maneuvers. The cinematographer did so with the use of a Phantom Flex 4k HD high-speed camera on board an aircraft.
This camera was chosen for its durability at high altitudes, fast framerates, and its ability to minimize motion blur. The result, of course, is a unique and gorgeous shot of the Raptor and its slow-motion dynamics.
It shows vapors sweeping off the jet in unexpected ways.
Vasquez’s next mission is to film a jet as it breaks the sound barrier – now that would be something else!
