CamSwarm app will allow you to shoot the "matrix effect" with smartphones

First applied in the movie "The Matrix" effect "Bullet Time" will soon become available to users of ordinary smartphones. To obtain the effect of rotating the camera around the subject, four smartphones with an installed application from Adobe Systems, developed in collaboration with researchers from Columbia University, will be enough.

This is how the professional "Bullet Time" is created

CamSwarm application allows you to synchronize the operation of the shutters of several cameras of smartphones connected via Wi-Fi. The developers believe that it is optimal to use 4 cameras located at right angles. Control is carried out from a pre-selected master camera. The application installation process takes about one minute. This development will allow photography enthusiasts to join forces to get incredible effects when shooting moving effects, and not just frozen in static.

The upcoming application is a modern implementation of the developments of Edward Muybridge (Eadweard Muybridge), who was looking for methods of obtaining chronophotos, consisting of a series of large numbers of consecutive images, back in the 19th century.
