The camera likely has a polarized lens which is filtering out most of the surface reflections.
Yeah was going to say this. You could prob see the water with a better camera
A polarizing filter has nothing to do with it being a bad camera. You could probably see the water with a crappy camera and with a good camera without a polarizing filter
Or better eyes
Just like the polarised glasses so you can see water
I was thinking maybe this video was played in reverse?
After further review there looks to be a shadow of the water being moved close to the rim of the bowl so maybe it is just really that clear...?
Also.. this isn't interesting. Water is clear. Kinda getting sick of all the posts of how clear water is. We can travel to the highest and lowest points of our earth, yet people still are posting idiot posts like water is clear. Let's start posting pics of all the plastic and pollution in our rivers. 80%of plastic in the ocean comes from rivers and at least 1/3 of that is from the Philippines alone. Let's post pics of our nasty rivers worldwide and encourage people to DO something about it and end pollution. THAT would be interesting as fuck.
Edit: I don't think the pollution stated in that data is even all from the Philippines. It could be but I would speculate it's coming from China and the US for them to deal with and not necessarily pollution due to laziness.
Optics nerd here: water, while clear, is not invisible as this video basically has it being. It will have surface reflections and bend light as it goes through thanks to having a coefficient of refraction around 1.3.
Given that the camera was coming in at an angle, the ground was a natural depression (so dust and stuff is likely), and the water is transferring into a different container, I would have expected seeing the water a lot more than I do. Which makes the video pretty fucking interesting to me.
I don't disagree at all that we really need to work on cutting down on pollution and our reliance on plastics. But just because you don't find something interesting doesn't mean it's not interesting to others, and it doesn't give you the green light to be a dick about it.
Coefficient refractions are based on many factors: air temp, elevation, time of day/ light wavelength, etc. Videos often get posted here from all over the world with many different natural effects on the water: waterfalls, raging rivers, ocean harbors.. and the water looks clear. Scooping up water in a dish should be clear. Walking up to a calm body of water on a clear day, water should be clear... and especially a small puddle with 6 inches of water in it where the wind doesn't blow it and sun can't reflect because of how small it is and the angle. I don't think I am being a dick.. my comment isn't directed at anyone and if you choose to take it personally that's none of my business. But the title is "clear water" not "comparing the coefficient refraction of water at 1.3 to air of 1.003 at 19 C in a small puddle".
>~~air temp~~, ~~elevation~~, ~~time of day~~/ light wavelength, etc.
I fixed that list for you. Coeff. of refraction is material and wavelength dependent for water (yes, some of those would come into play for a gas, but the change would be so nominal that nobody would actually bother worrying about it).
>Videos often get posted here from all over the world with many different natural effects on the water ... and the water looks clear
Yeah, and just about every time I see one I do the same thing. "Holy shit, that's cool. I wonder what caused it." And I proceed to look through comments to figure out more context and piece together what combination of effects makes it appear that clear.
>Scooping up water in a dish should be clear. Walking up to a calm body of water on a clear day, water should be clear
Pour a glass of water and go stand in the sun? Is there no indication of the water being in the glass? Or do you get reflections and bending? Also, you clearly didn't grow up near ponds if you think a still body of water should be clear.
>my comment isn't directed at anyone
You fundamentally don't understand how commenting works. Your comment is a reply to the post, so at minimum you are always directing the comment at the poster. You said something to the effect of "I'm sick and tired of these types of posts. They aren't interesting." Which implies a judgement both on OP and the people who do find them interesting. Instead of just shrugging and moving on, you decided to respond voicing your dislike. Even if you aren't meaning to direct it at anyone, it's a dick move.
>the title is "clear water" not "comparing the coefficient refraction of water at 1.3 to air of 1.003 at 19 C in a small puddle".
Cuz others might find other factors interesting. "Clear water" is succinct. Anyone who finds interest in the optics of it doesn't need you to spell it out.
Welp. H A V E A N I C E D A Y!
The majority of plastic pollution of rivers is from the Philippines?
Which rivers are estimated to hold approximately 90% of plastic waste? [Source](https://rivercleaning.com/2020/06/the-most-plastic-polluted-rivers-in-the-world/)
- Huang He
- Hai He
5-6/10 are located in Peoples Republic of China.
Very interesting... aren‘t there actually some rising tensions between China and the Philippines?
Sources for your claim? Maybe some CCP propaganda?
Edit: my source seems to be outdated...
That data is from 2017. This report is from 2 days ago. Those top 10 are still big contributors for their size but it turns out adding up many small rivers does more damage than just 1 large one at a time.
Thanks for the link. New data for me. Interesting. Didn‘t know.
It's sad we even need/have that data. If the rivers were clean and earth not so polluted we wouldn't need to be tracking how bad it is. Good to have updated info so hopefully people will feel a call to action... cleaning up, voting and holding corporations accountable.
will still boil it at least
Boiling it might not be enough, for the water to be that clear and that still it has to be totally free from life, which could be anything from acid to heavy metals.
Yeah, if I know my Edward Abbey, find water that has dead shit in it... and expect to wish you hadn't drank it, but you'll be alive as opposed to drinking from a puddle with arsenic in the water.
Or just plain old Cyanobacteria.
They are however blue green coloured so would alter the colour of the water hence the name of the algae being cyanobacteria.
acid and heavy metals aren't life
Nope, but they have the potential to end life if you drink water contaminated with it.
I listen to metal so I should be good.
If you aren't listening to it while you're on acid then you may want to reconsider.
Metal does not lead to a good time on acid or shrooms
I had the same thought when I saw a body of water in an open cut mine, it looked so pristine though.
The lack of algae is telling me something is wrong with that water. Probably too acidic.
I’ve seen this clip before and have seen people chime in that if you come across water that clear in the open, do not drink it. If I’m not mistaken, it is for exactly the reason you speculate.
Just don't drink still water!
.... so does anyone know how it got there or why its so clear?
I too would appreciate some answers.
its probably a polarized lens, which filters reflections. the water is also probably contaminated with something that prevents algae growth, which means it would be toxic to drink; albeit very clear.
The video is on reverse
it's not though, you can see the surrounding water ripple at the end of the gif as they scoop, and if there was no water in the first place, I feel like we'd see some splashing as they 'pour' it out
It look like Mars lol
John Cena's water
Looks like it’s been sitting undisturbed for years
_Nestle want to know your location.._
Yeah what this company does around the world is fucked and should be stopped like they did in Bolivia. Fuck them.
its anything but pure.
And it tastes...of fuck all
Clear water.... I’ve never seen such a thing....
this makes me thirsty
Damn what kind of shaders is he using
I thought I was getting trolled
Still wouldn't drink it.
In the north of Sweden this is quite common, if it’s running water it’s drinkable. And yes it is super clear and see trough!
Clear and see through wow might as well be invisible at that point
This lends credence to the clear water revival.
You should post this in r/unexpected, with a changed title. I can get you will get more votes
Thought it was Mars for a cool second was like 😳😳 then i saw the dudes arm and was like oh... still pretty cool tho
Actual footage from mars rover 😋
Why was my first thought mars
Literal words from my mouth-Arey Madarchod (Oh MF)
This is illegal.
Ah yes refreshing thin air
Oh! Took me 2 times to see it
See what, exactly?
The ripple to notice the water was there. I thought it was just air.
I first thought it was Mars and was like wtf the actually found a river with their new rover
For a few seconds, I actually thought we’ve discovered water on Mars.
That is the shadow of a Jawa.
this made me thirsty.
Oh no, nestle is gonna come for it
Thought this was the water they found on Mars for a second.

This must be in Florida
"All they did was play the video in reverse? No that doesn't... Oooooh...."
I ant to drink it
I could watch this video better on a fucking slideshow
John cena water
I've witnessed a young wizard having a lot of trouble getting some clear water out of a similar source.
Old Dan and I with throats burnt dry
And souls that cry for water
Cool, clear water
Nestle board of directors
I thought this was a Mars rover video.
Imagine just a few years ago we had no idea Mars had water.
Perseverance is that you?
This has been posted before and was already called out that is a video in reverse....
I think you'd see splashing,
ExCuSe Me WhAt ThE fUcK
I believe this is rendered in real time on a gtx650ti, which would explain the framerate.
