Nice, I was also in for magic and martial arts back in the day. Did you just throw cards at the camera or was that an edit?

The Charlier Cut "is a marvel that few can accomplish?" :lol: Most laymen can't do it, but any serisous hobbyist can get it down in about a week or less. There is no "rotation" on this cut, sounds like you are talking about the Hot Shot cut. In a standard Charlier the cards just drop down after the middle finger pushes the bottom packet back.

There is a MMA fighter that comes over to our house every once in a while to watch the UFC fights, and he can do a Charlier Cut. That surprised me. That was my random fact of the day, in case you're wondering why I posted that. :D

she might have gotten them confused. I did both a Revolution cut and a charlier cut. If i recall, i believe it "should be" a revolution cut. and yeah I got down a charlier in about 2 days. Theres plenty wrong on this article, its probably my fault on the communication side.

Yeah I thought so. Took me about 10 to catch the card mid-flight awhile back while doing the hotshot. Very tough to time the timer. That was a good take however, and magical in itself. Especially how grouped they are.

Luckily the photographer had about two thousand dollars worth of equipment. One of those super fast *skater cameras*. and some really nice lighting.

Ah one of those high-speed cameras with no blurring. Wish I had one of those.
