      *My physics teacher showed this to me in class, and even he gave the wrong explaination.* *I think i have to quit studies and watch US-new*

    6. gottarunmemeboi lolz

      In every video, i know the words, just not in the order you put them in

    7. Hank Richard

      5:14 when I saw the red I thought is would say WASTED

    8. lance lin

      why is his hair blending in with the camera????? 3:11

    9. Grickery

      I've done this by blinking very quickly, while looking at a ceiling fan.

    10. Xppp1

      I cant believe CD is fucking DEAD

    11. B n

      Hi Captain D how can i send you a video to demistify

    12. Timur Timak

      That moment of a ceiling fan falling onto a human head was very dissonating.

    13. Marcus Vinicius

      So if I punch someone and they dont see it coming does that mean they just need to adjust their frame rate ?

    14. Jack Black

      Is not a true Captain Disillusion video without him being injured, right? But if it happened in EVERY SINGLE VIDEO then it would be predictable and...

    15. Andrew Jackson

      The original video title was Frame Rate, but a load of photography students who think they know better "encouraged" the change

    16. Luke Iannone

      You were doing the ceiling fan at double time it wasn’t matching the right rpm

    17. Mr. Cat

      This guy is so god damn smart!

    18. Rahul Koli 2

      man u r awsm love from india. thnx

    19. s gg

    20. deslomator

      Now that's a crossover!

    21. Jt kire

      I would hate to go against this guy in terms of knowledge. 😑😑

    22. r3tr0_Zealot

      My son has epilepsy and spazzed out during this video. Smh

    23. Deathswitch

      the same thing can be done with water droplets as shown in a film called now you see me 2

      How much time do you need to color your ears like this???😂

    28. THUN BORG

      Captain Dissolution, finally a being worthy of assimilation.

    29. Thomas Karmy

      Your weak

    30. CornierKhan1

      Why not just make it 0fps smh /s

    31. jmrcsnchz

      Can u debunk the guy that shot his head with shotgun? Seems to be Pretty fake for me

    32. H I

      These vids are too high quality for US-new 😂😂😂

    33. dnsbrules

      I’ve use a strobe light and flipped a toy gun and tried to catch it and failed. If we were cameras we wouldn’t be able to catch thrown things.

    34. Klaus Schneirder

      The rpm of the helicopter blades are changing constantly dew to the collective pitch, wich means the fps of the camera must constantly be changing as well for the video to be true.

    35. Michael

      I lol'd at that stupid last joke.

    36. nikushim666

      "if you want to see this replicated" just point a potentiometer tuned strobe light at a ceiling fan.

    37. lambert Kasaija

      Hey captain, is this video real, the drone has some unreal movements us-new.com/online/video-l5FqYiZb_5s.html

    38. sgiza228

      Just like using a timing light while timing an engine. The light flashes on the timing marks and you can see the marks as if the engine isn’t spinning.

    39. Tiggle Bittles

      I love this man

    40. darkknightmr

      Question smn to answer me ..on naked eye sometimes the rims of cars seems to be still or slowdown ...so what is our rpm ?

      1. darkknightmr

        I need the answer and I dont know where to find ....

      2. darkknightmr

        Is the blinking the factor?

    41. LIDZRU

      Wait.. Lag???

    42. William Allen

      Someone call 911

      Couldn’t you also find out the FPS that a human eye sees using this method?

    57. Chester Cobblepot

      We use strobe lights at work to check if any of the bolts came loose on the spinning cans

    58. mocha aliana

      I like how you just don't age.

    59. Rai Zon

    61. Robert Young

      You should do a video on the New Zealand mosque "incident" I know you won't though It's too controversial 😥 The video looked super fake Seriously

    62. TCGamerOfficial

      Its been working just fi- *ceiling fan falls on head* _are you ok?_

    63. Tommy Hammernots

      Thx Captain Obvious

    64. Wandren GT

      But i dont understand. sometimes when cars pass by while Im in a car, the other cars wheels goes slower and slower until it goes backwards even tho they are in the same speed. What is up with that? also when I used to have fidget spinners, if there was a light pointing directly down at it, it would do the same effect and thats not recorded... thats my eyesight. can someone please explain Im very curious. P.S. Love ur videos. Please post more

      1. dasSchaf27

        I think, I can explain: The effect can not just happen with a camera but also under stroboscopic illumination (like Cap D showed with the fan). In the case of the backwards turning tires of a car next to you: If you sit in a car, the vibration of the engine also vibrates your eyes. This causes a similar effect as if you were seeing light flickering at the same frequency as the vibration. Apparently, you can create the effect by humming as well. As for the fidget spinner: certain lights (like fluorecent lights) will start to flicker once they go bad. At first, it might be barely noticeable but will still produce the "strobe light" effect for your fidget spinner.

    65. Tutankhamun1333

      My eyes can see the effect of still straight blades but also see them spinning behind the still ones at the same time, would you kindly explain how my eyes can even do this.

    66. Michael Williamson

      I love how it looks like you've been huffing silver paint.

      1. bob bob

        @Michael Williamson thats the best reply i've ever gotten to a low tier joke

      2. Michael Williamson

        bob bob if I could tell you exactly what CD is doing I don't think I'd be sitting on the shitter at work to avoid actually doing my job.

      3. bob bob

        you're telling me thats not exactly what he does?

    67. mano county deputy

      Also heli blades dont rely on the main blades when on take off, its the back.

      1. Quagmirian

        are you fucking stupid

    68. Denki is best boy

      Hey, I do that strobe thing with my eyes and fan sometime! I blink in time with the blades, at least until my eyes tire out.

    69. Gaming Toaster

      Has no one realized that metal is melting off his face? How does that not hurt?

    70. Roi R. Czechvala

      The thing that suks about your show is "I KNOW" I'll bet you get that a lot. Common sense!
