Small World In Motion

Nikon have recently announced the winners of their Small World in Motion video competition this year (separate to their Small World Photomicrography competition) and the results are genuinely stunning.

If I didn’t know otherwise I would have said that any number of them could be human-made CGI or generative algorithms, but these are all genuine real life moments captured on film using varying techniques and degrees of magnification.

All of the top five chosen are worthy of their place, but my favourite is actually the entry that was awarded 2nd place – Perspiration on a human fingertip by Tsutomu Tomita and Shun Miyazaki.

It was recorded using stereomicroscopy and shows between 5x and 40x magnification of a fingertip, to the point where you can actually see individual droplets of sweat appearing on the surface of the skin.  Incredible!

See the top five and all honorable mentions from 2017 here.
