View Full Version : Why do the cameras at the grand slam make the balls seem like they fly faster?

Just watching the French Open today and the balls fly faster than the cameras at the smaller tournaments, I remember at the Australian it was the same as well. Do they just have better cameras? I don't think it's the angle since they are placed pretty high

good question, it depends on the camera I guess, some seem to make the ball faster, some slower and some even slower than they really are

this one for exemple: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6si8F70wf00

thats how fast the balls should be on tv, but they actually seem waaaay faster imho

when rafa loses at FO this year, nadal_freak/veroniquem will use this thread as the excuse. ie: they sped up the courts.

The former already is.
