Shooting 1,000fps Video With a Canon 7D

The Canon 7D can shoot 720p HD video at 60fps, but an After Effects plug-in called Twixtor lets you slow that footage down—way down—to 1,000fps. Paired with the right (relatively slow-moving) subject matter, it looks phenomenal. [Kottke]


I keep getting confused, if a higher FPS means a smoother, *faster* picture, then how does a 1k fps make stuff slower?

Go easy on me, I'm a n00bie....
