That thing is awesome! :eek: It takes 4,000 frames per second and shows the players' swings in slow motion. I wish they could use it more :)

Correction: Hurricane cam is what it was called at Wimbledon, at the USOpen they are calling it "Swing vision".

It's sooo awesome! :worship: It's being used at least twice a match; they only used it twice at Wimbly :o. Some of the "swings" that have been caught were Roddicks' serve, Capriati's backhand, Rodicks' forehand, Henman's volley & Serena's serve. :worship: Very cool cam :worship:

Is it only me or was the "Tornado Cam" (that´s how I know it) at Wimby of a better quality? It appeared to me like that. I absolutely love it, though, yeh, they have used it very seldom at Wimby, it´s a pity. I can only remember watching Federer and Sharapova (who else?) in slooooooow motion, it´s so awesome!

I haven´t seen the cam at the USO as often as you guys say it. I only remember it being used yesterday at Roddick´s match, they showed how the ball looks like during an Andy serve when it touches the racket, amazing!

I´d love to see a super slow motion of Justine´s backhand (did I miss that too?).

It would be like a van Gogh picture or watching a sunset :angel:

If I were an art freak and had tons of money, I would set up a big plasma screen across the whole wall and just let the super slow motion scene of Justine´s backhand playing again and again...this would be interesting :lol: . OMG, I may not be an art freak but a freak in general :eek:

It would look great in watercolour with a little gauche mixed in http://media.ign.com/boardfaces/5.gif
