A high-speed camera is a device used for recording fast moving objects as a photographic image(s) onto a storage medium. After recording, the images stored on the medium can be played back in slow-motion. Read more about them below the videos.
My interest, of course, is with golf applications. Below are just a few that I have collected.
Early high-speed cameras used film to record the high-speed events, but today high-speed cameras are entirely electronic recording typically over 1000 frames per second and playing images back slowly to study the motion for scientific study.
A normal motion picture is filmed and played back at 24 frames per second, while television uses 25 frames/s (PAL) or 29.97 frames/s (NTSC). High-speed cameras can film up to a quarter of a million frames per second by running the film over a rotating prism or mirror instead of using a shutter, thus reducing the need for stopping and starting the film behind a shutter which would tear the film stock at such speeds. Using this technique one can stretch one second to more than ten minutes of playback time (super slow motion).
The fastest cameras are generally in use in scientific research, military test and evaluation, and industry. Examples of industrial applications are filming a manufacturing line to better tune the machine, or in the car industry the crash testing to better document the crash and what happens to the automobile and passengers during a crash. Today, the digital high-speed camera has replaced the film camera used for Vehicle Impact Testing.Television series such as MythBusters and Time Warp often use high-speed cameras to show their tests in slow motion.
Saving the recorded high-speed images can be time consuming because the newest cameras today have resolutions up to four megapixels at record rates over 1000 frames per second, which means in one second you will have over 11 gigabytes of image data. Technologically these cameras are very advanced, yet saving images requires use of slower standard video-computer interfaces. While recording is very fast, saving images is considerably slower. The fastest high-speed camera has the ability to take pictures at a speed of 200 million frames per second.

Golf Club Distance Temperature Calculator
The calculator will provide you with these features:
How does air temperature affect carry and total distance with different lofts? What about altitude changes?
Input your club ranges at 70 F and have the spreadsheet calculate your ranges at any temperature, hot or cold.
Compare your shot to the average PGA or LPGA player. See the difference in the trajectories for all clubs.
Explore optimum distances on soft fairways and firm fairways. Would you use different loft Drivers?
Determine launch angles resulting from different lofts and club speeds.
Discover backspin rates resulting from different lofts and club speed.
Maximum height of golf ball for all clubs.
Time of flight for all trajectories for all clubs.
Impact angles the the resulting roll along the fairway for all clubs.
Explore the effect of wind speed and direction on your shots for all clubs.
I will make minor modifications to the spreadsheet to suit your personal needs.
