A super-high shutter speed on a high-speed train produced this hypnotic video. On repeated viewing, you start to pick up the small, almost imperceptible gestures that seemingly immobile people are making. The parallax caused by the moving camera gives the scene a startling 3-D effect, probably because the motion is so smooth and unblurred.
It’s basically the same principle as those 3-D fly-throughs that are created with a huge array of still cameras fired simultaneously and then stitched together to give the appearance of motion. Watching it, however, I had the vivid sense of seeing something truly new.
