Use to love seeing all the high speed camera work on projectiles and explosions on myth busters. It’s nice they are back on reruns again.

It's not a dedicated high speed camera, it's a Nikon Z9. When you look at the news, it also the combination with a very good lens. Anyway, 120 fps in JPEG help, depite the photographer is also a great guy.

Wow, would not have expected that detail at 120fps!

Hi Jeff

 

Just to let you know (as I'm an amateur photographer), here are some metrics as it's the flagship of Nikon. 

 

Nikon Z9

  • 6000 euros
  • #1.3 Kg
  • More info here (I let you have look on the tech specs esp. shutter ... mad !!!!)

Nikkor 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR (telezoom)

  • 11 000 - 12 0000 euros
  • #3.5 Kg
  • More info here (it's really designed for sport photography and can be also used for nature / wild life photo)

 

So summarizing, this is based on a total of 18 000 euros / #20,500 USD / #2 350 000 yens (French 20% VAT included).

 

You must be a professional to invest such an amount (or benefit loan equipment during the olympic games when your're an accredited professional photographer).

 

I don't think a tripod was used for a good reason : the shutter speed (1/32000) is incredibly high, thus you don't need it as long as you've good arms and shoulders (5 kg for the camera & the lens ... it's tremendous) or in that case, probably a simple monopod (so that the framing remains unchanged and you're 'just' relying on the shutter speed for preventing the motion blur. Otherwise it remains possible to lean on a barrier or a small wall with a damper pouch for more comfort. 

 

Anyway, this is a great shot that requires a high degree of knowledge to make it (incl. the framing itself which is super clean)

Doh! Sorry totally forgot to take shutter speed into account! Definitely going to grab that action at those shutter speeds it’s just getting the lucky shot where it’s all in in just the right composition like this. Amazing where digital photography has gone.
