Worlds Fastest Camera - 6.1 Million Pictures a Second

Scientists have developed a new camera which takes pictures at a rate never before achieved. It takes 6.1 million pictures a second. That computes to a shutter speed of 440 trillionths of a second. This rate of capture means the second shot is taken before light has even had a chance to move a full centimeter. That is incredibly fast.
