If you're not familiar with bullet-time photography, think back to scenes from films like The Matrix, which show a moment in time captured from many different angles. To the audience, it appears as though they are rotating around the action. Australian collective the Splice Boys have become well known for their bullet-time videos .

As a promotional tool for Asus and Intel, a bullet-time rig has appeared in Sydney, consisting of 36 Canon EOS 1100D SLRs. Each has been fitted out with the stock-standard 18-55mm kit lens and a series of triggers for capturing photos. Participants stand in the middle of the circuit while the rig triggers the cameras, capturing a 360-degree view of the action.

The finished sequence of images is converted to a video, and uploaded to YouTube.

The photo booth has already visited Melbourne and Brisbane, and will be in Sydney until Thursday, 20 December.
