Apollo 11 Saturn V Launch (HD) Camera E-8 on Vimeo

I’m a sucker for the Mercury and Apollo programs (nothing wrong with Gemini, I just didn’t read as much about that).

Here’s 30 seconds of liftoff of Apollo 11 at 500fps, so it takes 8+ minutes.  Good narration.  Very entertaining!

    Side note: That is a an amazing camera/film: 500 frames per second with constant exposure (there is no aperture change in the whole duration), and a dynamic range that I would love to get even close to in my digital SLR. It whites off for only a few real time seconds. I’ll bet it was no cheap Super8.
