Lighting is always a factor when filming anything. In fact, for me, it is more important to have good lighting than to have a good camera to evoke emotion so lighting has always been an interest of mine. To shoot something at 1,000,000,000,000 Frames per second- this is amazing! I can only imagine what this technology could be in 10 years. 

 This is what it looks like when light actually hits something: 

 The device has been developed by the MIT Media Lab's Camera Culture group in collaboration with Bawendi Lab in the Department of Chemistry at MIT. A laser pulse that lasts less than one trillionth of a second is used as a flash and the light returning from the scene is collected by a camera at a rate equivalent to roughly 1 trillion frames per second. However, due to very short exposure times (roughly one trillionth of a second) and a narrow field of view of the camera, the video is captured over several minutes by repeated and periodic sampling.
