Hack Idea: Budget slow-motion film system

When most people think of slow motion movie effects, they think of big, expensive, complicated cameras. But, with the newest GoPro able to shoot at 240fps, it doesn’t have to be that way. So, here’s the plan. Attach the GoPro to a ceiling fan for Matrix-style bullet time rotating around the subject. Or, if you want something linear, set it up to slide along some PVC pipe.

It’s not quite Hollywood quality special effects - but it’s definitely not Hollywood budget, either!
