    Why can't they use slow motion cameras for run outs.

    The frames are causing to much confusion. Wouldn't it be easier to use the slow motion ones.

    Perhaps they can use thermal imaging cameras for runouts too? Heat transfer from grounding the bat and when the gloves touch. There's a lot of places a camera *could* be used.

    Have you seen those ultra motion things! Holy, by the time they get to the part where he dislodges the bails, it'll be tea time.

    they do only have one as they cost a trillion, if they transfer the one they have to run outs we will loose the great images we have, the positioning of it at the moment is convienient as it shows great pictures and can also be sued to determine whether the ball the the bat etc, leave it where it is unless ur gonna pay a trillion for another

    How is that in any way helpful to the conversation?
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I suppose sliding the bat would leave a trail of heat on the pitch. At the exact point that you see some line behind the crease then you can look at if the bails have been removed. Would help determine if the bat is in the air (or foot). Still an awful lot of effort for very little reward. Slow motion cameras would be very conclusive however.

    Sorry, I was just thinking about this at the same time I opened this thread

    In the context of more technology creeping into the game - as the cost of introducing these new things decreases perhaps we'll see more ultra high frame and thermal/other imaging. Whether this is a good or bad thing is a whole other debate.

    Agree with the OP.

    Not just sarcasm. Totally unnecessary sarcasm. Sin is the abuse of sarcasm.

    Fair enough - but Bob Bamber is far from the first person to start a thread and receive sarcastic responses...

    Back on topic, this pretty much answers the question posed by the OP...

    I think it's worth losing the "great" images to get a decision right.

    Doubt many people would agree with you actually... And channel 9 or whoever isn't going to pay for the camera just to help the third umpire rather than to provide entertaining vision for their coverage, so is the ICC going to pick up the bill?

    Honestly, how often does the frame issue prevent a decent decision being made? If you can't tell with the cameras they use, then I reckon theirs enough doubt to say that you can't be certain the batsman was out, and hence a "not out" call is the correct call.
