1000 frame per second films of lightning strikes at various parts of the US (but mainly Arizona) captured in 4k by filmmaker Dustin Farrell using a Phantom Flex4K high-speed camera. The three minute film contains a total of three terabytes (3,000GB) of data. Farrell sez of it:

Lightning is like a snowflake. Every bolt is different. I learned that lightning varies greatly in speed. There are some incredible looking bolts that I captured that didn’t make the cut because even at 1000fps they only lasted for one frame during playback. I also captured some lightning that appear computer generated it lasted so long on the screen.
