GoPro’s Tyler Johnson put together this cool array of 24 GoPro HERO 3 cameras, which provides a “budget” alternative to the high-end Matrix bullet time effect.
You can see the handheld array in the above frame grab. I think Tyler did a solid job of blending the frames together in post for the smooth bullet time effect.
Yesterday, I asked you what you want in your next camera. Lots of great responses and interesting ideas. Some of it is feasible for sure in the next generation. Some, not so much.

One of the major components of CrossFit is regularly engaging in Olympic weightlifting. A large percentage of workouts contain some form of Oly lifting, as it’s called.
