Why Do Photo Finish Images Look Weird?
Physics Education Volume 47, Number 5, ISSN 0031-9120
This paper deals with effects that appear on photographs of rotating objects when taken by a photo finish camera, a rolling shutter camera or a computer scanner. These effects are very similar to Roget's palisade illusion. A simple quantitative analysis of the images is also provided. The effects are explored using a computer scanner in a way that is also suitable for a student project activity. (Contains 10 figures.)
