Our IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds for a new set of video gear has been going better than I could possibly expected – it hasn’t even been 24 hours yet and we’re already 62% of the way there. Thank you to everyone who has stepped up so far – every dollar helps!
The campaign will continue for a full 30 days, because that’s how I initially set it up (not expecting the awesome response it has generated). If we can blow past the initial $7500 goal, I will use the addition money to get a good slow-motion camera (an Edgertronic). Priced at $5500, it is one of the very few high-speed cameras in a middle ground between the consumer-lever ones like what I have now and the many-tens-of-thousands-of-dollars super-professional ones. It will capture 500 fps at 1080HD, and 700 fps at 720HD. That’s not enough to watch bullets leave barrels, but will work great for really high-quality footage of firearms mechanisms in action.
At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
