Sleight of Hand in SLOW MOTION - Is the hand quicker than the eye?! (Bad idea)

21339 ratings | 606112 views
Today I'm going to put Sleight of Hand magic to the ultimate test! I shot a few sleight of hand card tricks in 120 frames per second to see if, despite my skill, you could see how the card trick was done. Probably a terrible idea..

this is a great example of being cynical or a dreamer.. The idea of amazement in things that could never be real shapes a mind for growth. Then let that person figure out if they want to be a cynic or a dreamer.

ok but why is gordons brother doing magic instead of cooking

There is really no reason for magicians to be secretive anymore. Even if you had not done this video I could find out how they were done with a few minutes of Google searching. Actually, I find that knowing how it is done allows me to appreciate the skill and hard work that goes into this a lot more.

5:47 Go to settings and slow it down to 0.25x too... 0.0625x speed...

When you slow him down at 0.25 he talks like david blain.

That's so awesome! Those skills are super impressive. And we all know magic's not "real". If it was possible to do card tricks without sleight of hand then there'd be no reason to be impressed. The beauty of magic is not that cards can appear from nothing, it's that you can make it *look* as though it appears from nothing, and that takes years of practice. And you know what, seeing it in slo-mo just makes me even more impressed when you can see how it's done. Big illusions, on the other hand, feel like cheating when you work out how it's done.

You could always cut and attach the videos so you cant see the sleight in slomo

It seems like when people start posting newer color changes, all of a sudden everyone else is doing them and you start to see the same ones everywhere.

This is a video I have been wanting to see for a long time. Actually makes me respect your skills even more.

David King (3 days ago)
Hope you read this. One thing I've learned from the Penn and Teller Fool Us show is that they love the performance of a trick as much or more than understanding how it's done. I feel like wanting to figure a trick out gets in the way of the enjoyment of just watching it. Nobody is staring at a pianist player at .2x speed replay going "Ah ha! I see he makes notes when he pushes the white and black things! Well, I can't enjoy this any more now that Ive figured THAT out..."
Gabriel Divine (3 days ago)
Awesome video .. love your reactions :D

Great video. First time watching you and I have to say I like how you did this video great learning tool and imo it draws people in to watch more to try and mimic your moves.
I'm Daunting (4 days ago)
Bro if you can work on that last one a little bit more you would be able to do it to anyone and it would be instantly magical very cool video without .25 and some with these sleights are epic

That was fascinating and very entertaining. It was a great idea!
Darkjonny79 (4 days ago)
I think you should slow down your tricks more, but more for you. As you noted several times throughout, there are things you could do better going forward. Slowing down your tricks shows you where to improve and allows you a way to improve. Might not be the perfect way to improve, but it could work.
ben lang (4 days ago)
Even though you can see sometimes how it's done. It's just incredible skill to do it
Efreitor Habibulin (5 days ago)
i think you can trick youtube slow speed, if you reduce framerate in your videos to 24fps instead of 60fps, less information and 0.25 speed shoul look clunky and won't reveal the tricks :)

9:22 if you slow down this video to 0.25 you can see his pinky move when shifting 😂 😂 gotcha
Spencer Smith (5 days ago)
Dude as someone who used to do magic and only recently found your channel, some of these look fucking beautiful. While trying not to sound like r/iamverysmart, I have to say that even knowing how all these are done, I absolutely loved watching the intro clip over and over again.
Spencer Smith (5 days ago)
I can't shut up about this, On youtube .25 due to the file compression, you actually beat the framerate on your clip-shift. Check out 1:04 on youtube.
Spencer Smith (5 days ago)
I mean that split change at 0:19?! HOLY BALLS MAN. I tried so long to nail that with a 3-club to Ace/2 and eventually gave up. Respect.

Gustavo Bk (7 days ago)
Respect! I subscribed as soon as I saw this. Not everybody would slow down their own video and expose their tricks.
Elli Gibson (8 days ago)
I love being fooled, I love being caught by sleight of hand. But I also like resolving my curiosity. I enjoy magic the most, because I like taking the time to figure out how something is done.

This video is dope. I love your reactions to your own tricks slowed down. It's also a very good way to learn how to improve your tricks aswell.

9:45. One frame (@60fps presumably) is 0.166666667 seconds or [100/60] seconds, and a deck of cards is 2.5" across. So this card traveled 1.25" in [100/60]s or 75inch/s which is 4.26mph (6.857kph) which is less impressive than I thought it would be when I started this comment.

That being slowed down now gives you more to work on being faster then the lens. It will only make you better and work harder to be perfect. Couple of these tricks you did was done perfect. Great video.

Dude, your magic is cool, and if a viewer feels the need to slow down someones video just to shit all over it, they're dead inside, end of chat! Keep on keeping on!
Da Vinci (14 days ago)
Even in super slow motion I'm missing a few of these... Goos stuff. I just started watching. I found this from 52kards
sSsaayeemMm (15 days ago)
I mean... most of the tricks are flawless by 1 - 3 frames... you do edit your videos... so... what I would do is just edit out those 3 frames to make it look as "magical" as it really is! Don't get me wrong, I think that this helps out a lot of people trying to learn tricks... but... it also takes away the magic, even though I love this and I'll try now to do a great slide of hand like you did on the video... I would rather not know or figure it out by my self rather beeing able to crumble the magic just by pressing settings-speed-0.25
