    To view with less compression, select 4K even if you don't have a 4K screen. You'll get a higher bit rate. Slow mo pro-tip. - Gav

    Everytime y'all do the slow mo zoom I keep unconsciously trying to rotate my head with the vortex-
    Edit: The orange food coloring made that look like molten gold-

    Food companies should 100% hire you guys for their commercials! Also, what kind of camera company thinks it's a good idea to make F-14 the widest aperture?! Good grief.

    There is just something so peaceful and beautiful about things filmed in slow motion. Your channel will forever be one of my absolute favorites.

    Not everyone press like, anything you plan and film can be redone with different colours, metals, water etcetera. Always just as satisfying!
    love it!

    Hey guys. I like this video but you should just do one or maybe two drops and film it turning the water from clear to the colour you add. It would look cool seeing the water change in slow motion.
