iPhone + airplane = awesome

Photography isn’t my forte, but I’m still amazed at what a camera can do. Check out this picture of an airplane’s propeller. No, that’s not Photoshopped. It was taken with an iPhone, whose camera has no shutter, and the pixels in that picture don’t get read all at once. The camera reads them in rows instead, creating a mad effect.

It turns out that this isn’t an isolated occurrence. One traveler took some photos during a flight and noticed the same thing. He also made a video that showed off how very strange this effect was in real time.

Trippy indeed.
