Propellers

iPhone cameras apparently scan left to right, which makes no difference for most pictures, but when you have a fast-moving object such as a propeller, you can get a really weird effect. See more of the same in photos here, here, here, and here. Or even in this video taken with a Treo.

It’s the weirdest thing I’ve seen since the video frame rate synched up perfectly for this helicopter.

  1. FYI, this effect (the creation of artifacts inconsistent with the reality of the subject being recorded) is called “aliasing”, and it happens any time you are doing sampling of an input, be it video, still imaging, or audio, for example.
