OK, so actually all film (digital, video or analogue) captures photons. But now in Sweden, the world's fastest camera has captured a single photon moving.

So the one video shows what looks like a small Sun. The other ones look like ghostly blobs. Kinda cool. Had to surmise how much artifact creation is done to make an image that we can see.
