Yesterday the Edgertronic camera arrived at the MIT Edgerton Center. We aim to use the camera underwater during Mission 31 to catch grouper fish feeding behavior. It will certainly be a challenge using the camera underwater. More updates on that later. Yesterday we were able to catch a balloon popping in slow-motion with the camera at MIT (see video at right).
