Ultra slo-mo videos from Make Faire

quote [Last weekend 3ric and Nathan Pegram attended Maker Faire down in the Bay Area. While there, they did live demos with the Phantom camera and gave a talk about shooting mosquitoes with lasers. We conducted some pure hackery in order to make these videos. The first key part was having a "Nanoflash SDI recorder". This standalone recorder can do real-time compression of 1080p content onto compact flash. In order to film and export video at a fast rate, we needed some other method than our typical "wait 15 minutes for gigabit ethernet" process. So we wired up this recorder to the Phantom, along with a linksys WRT54G access point running rogue firmware].
