Lightning Video Anomaly?
I was shooting some video of lightning (last night) when we had a nearby strike. As i was watching the playback I noticed (as I have before when shooting video) a weird thing that happens. In slow motion one can see a bolt that seems to appear impossibly close to the camera and then you see the main strike. off in the distance. I can't explain it and wish I knew a video technician who could because I would really like to know what causes it.
First you'll see the video in slow motion, showing the strange arc and then the main event. After that is the video in real time.
