Really cool video about the Olympic experience and all that goes into shooting the events. One thing that stood out was the gun went off on the men's 100M race at 9:52 local time and Reuters had photos of the finish out to their clients by 9:55, that's incredible.

LOL! Just posted the exact same comment on our ISN Facebook page. Wish I had photo assistants that could import, crop, adjust, export that quickly!

How did the guy get that shot @ 0.11? I understand if it is a studio environment you can keep the shutter open and flash multiple times.

I would assume it's a succession of shots all stacked on top of one another. At the FPS the X operates, it would look like that.

Multiple exposure mode is finally here for Canon. Nikon has had it for a bit now with the D4, not sure about any before that.
