Was watching some basketball highlights from the 80's and remembered that every time the camera angled towards the stadium lights, there would always be this lasting streak remaining on the footage.

 

Here is a sample video timecoded to where it happens: https://youtu.be/NySXt7-D-ys?t=7

 

What causes this phenomenon? At first I thought it was slow shutter speed but then realized it's sports photography.

In the right situation I believe it could look wonderful.

 

Thank you.

I just realized that in 10 years we will be digitally simulating CMOS smear, and in 20, rolling shutter. 🙃
