Today, thanks to high speed technology, we can see a radical change in the “poetics of images”: through high speed, it is possible to achieve spectacular moments that cannot be seen in any other way.
A high speed camera is a device used for recording fast-moving objects or actions as photographic images on a storage medium; in the last few years, a number of cameras have been made and the standard of the images today is fairly good.
In the past, this sort of camera was generally used in scientific research, military testing and in industry, but this technology can now be used in many different ways, from TV commercials to sports broadcasting, so for example in a tennis match we can show the audience a (fast) technical gesture in a different way: something that our eyes cannot see and this is possible through super slow motion.
To better understand the main potential of this technology, we have to understand how a standard camera works and compare it with a high speed one. A standard camera usually runs between 25 fps / 29.97 fps (it depends on whether it is NTSC or PAL standard), so in 1 second we have 25 / 29.97 frames.
On the other hand, with a high speed camera we can run from 25 fps / 29.97 fps to 5300 fps, keeping a high resolution standard (in the family of HD format). This is why it is possible to show something “more” and to see a lot of small details which are missed at normal speed.
Today this new technology can be applied to any sort of video, from sports broadcasting to music video clips.
Of course, the main difference now does not lie only in the technology (which is easily available for everybody) but in the experience achieved and in the expertise of the people specialised in this sort of shooting.
This is a concept to bear in mind for all clients who are new to high speed, because we have also recently seen an abuse of high speed where the final result is only slow motion and the beauty of the image is lacking.
In order to get the best result, it is always recommended to be in touch with a team of specialists, people who are used to working on the beauty and details of the image, always bearing in mind the great advantage achieved through slow motion.
There are so many k-pop boy groups, while the groups are too numerous to mention one by one. However, some of them just disappear after debut, and only a very small minority of k-pop boy groups can become popular. By the way, there is a boy group who has been on the steady rise since its debut and is now considered as one of the most popular k-pop idol groups. Yeah, it’s BTS.
As BTS is enjoying a huge popularity at home and abroad, many people in the k-pop world are now saying “The boy group is the future of k-pop.” Actually, BTS’ success is considered as being very special by people in the k-pop industry. Because BTS is in Big Hit entertainment, which is not as big k-pop agency as SM, YG, or JYP. Achieving success as an idol group of small and medium agency in the k-pop word is much harder than you could ever have imagined, and that’s why BTS deserves to be called “The k-pop pioneer”.
Then, what do you think is the reason for BTS’ great success? First, the main reason for BTS’ success is that the boy group differentiated itself from other boy groups by doing “real hip hop” music. The group writes its own music and sings about teenager’s life, arousing empathy from young k-pop fans.
Second, some of BTS fans may disagree, but the members have ordinary looks unlike other pretty k-pop idols. They’re not traditionally good-looking, and frankly speaking, I thought they are too ugly to be idols when I saw BTS for the first time. However, because of this, they could become the hottest idol group. I mean, fans could feel more comfortable and familiar with the members because they do not look like cartoon characters.
Third, BTS is an idol group, but its members, Rap Monster and Suga have released their mixtapes just like underground rappers do. By doing so, they stressed the fact that they’re different from other puppet like idols. Especially, Rap Monster, who has polished his rap skills in the Korean underground hip hop scene before debut is getting the spotlight in the k-pop industry by showing off his outstanding rapping ability. He’s been active not only as an idol but also as a rapper, and he was also featured as a rapper in the album of MFBTY, comprised of Tiger JK, Yoon Mirae, and Bizzy who are considered as heavyweights in the Korean hip hop scene.
BTS certainly succeeded in fascinating k-pop fans and it’s mainly because of the group’s image as a skilled hip hop idol. Oh, it’s not just an image. The BTS members have sufficient performing skills and always prove it on the stage. Unlike other puppet like k-pop idol groups, they enjoy the stage and show high quality live performance. Have you been to BTS’ concert? It’s really gorgeous.
So, are you a big fan of BTS? Do you want to know all the stories about BTS members? < BTS: The k-pop pioneer> contains all the things about BTS. The author, who has been working as a k-pop journalist since 2010 gives you answers to all the questions about BTS such as “What are their real personality like?”, “What were they like in school?” and “How did they become k-pop idols?”. The book also includes various stories behind BTS members. So, welcome to the real world of k-pop. Enjoy your time!

Video games are the popular gifts for kids of today. As a parent, you need to ensure that the games your kids play are fun, affordable and safe. It’s true that video games should not be the primary source of entertainment for your kids, but playing games every now and then won’t hurt. Given below are some easy ways to choose the right game. Read on to know more.
1. Read Reviews
Reading reviews is one of the ways of looking for the right one. All you have to do is search for the game titles that interest you. These reviews are left by other parents. For instance, you can head to Common Sense Media. The reviews will give you a pretty good idea of how suitable a game would be for your kids.
2. Check The Rating
Make sure that the titles you choose are suitable for the game of your kid. Typically, ESRB rating system is used to rate the games. For instance, the rating may be either EC or AO. The important thing is to skip titles that are “M” rated. Actually, the problem is that these titles may contain unsuitable stuff, such as strong language, sexual content, and intense violence. Aside from this, these products may be too addictive for your children. For instance, games in the Call of Duty series may not be a good choice for minors. As for general rating, you should go for ones with above average ratings.
3. Go For Free Games
Maybe your son will look games that are based on his favorite TV shows. Mostly, these types of titles are free. So, money is not a problem but make sure you consider the ESRB rating. You can find them online on many websites. So, you don’t have to go from one shop to another.
4. Know the Impact of Your Game
If you want to check the impact of a certain game on your kid, a good way of doing so is to sit with your kid at the PC. This way you can easily find out if it is child-friendly or educational. As soon as you get familiar with a particular title, you can give your kid the free access to it. However, don’t let your children play the games all day long.
5. Your Kids’ Interests
Do you children love sports? Maybe they are into art and enjoy their favorite morning cartoons. If you choose the right ones, it will help them develop their skills at that particular sport.
6. Game Time
You can let your kid play their favorite games, but make sure they don’t spend all their time on a mobile or PC. They should do their schoolwork in time and perform other activities. As a general rule, around an hour of game play is enough for most kids.
If you are not into technology, choosing the right games can be a challenge for you. However, reading reviews can help you make the selection a lot easier. Hopefully, you will find this article helpful.
Many Japanese and tourists alike visit Sensoji Temple every year. But the Kinryu no Mai (golden dragon dance) is a special performance to enjoy if you can make it there on March 18th.
That same day in 628, two fisherman brothers fished a Buddhist statue out of the Sumida River. The village chief used this statue, which turned out to be one of the Bodhisattva Kannon, to found Sensoji. Or so the legend goes. And we celebrate the temple’s founding with this dance because Kannon took the form of a golden dragon when descending from Heaven.
