I didn't get the last bit about events recorded by the camera being in reverse order to those in the real world scene. Was it some sort of temporal effect of recording at close to the speed of light?
I think he was referring to a strobe effect in this case. If you flash a strobe light at a spinning wheel and adjust the rate of flash of the strobe you will see the wheel spinning in one direction, then stop, then go the other direction as the speed of the strobe approaches, equals, then passes the speed of the wheel. Apparently the frame rate is fast enough to cause a similar effect. But he certainly did say that some relativistic effects were there due to the extreme speeds involved.
