The world's fastest film camera: When light practically stands still

quote [ Forget high-speed cameras capturing 100,000 images per second. A research group at Lund University in Sweden has developed a camera that can film at a rate equivalent to five trillion images per second, or events as short as 0.2 trillionths of a second. This is faster than has previously been possible.

To illustrate the technology, the researchers have successfully filmed how light -- a collection of photons -- travels a distance corresponding to the thickness of a paper. In reality, it only takes a picosecond, but on film the process has been slowed down by a trillion times. ]

Finally my sexual prowess can be caught on film!

If it's that fast, can it be called prowess?

This has actually been in the works for a few years - I'm sure this was posted either here or on old SE when they first demonstrated this six years ago or so.
