What would you do with a camera that could capture over a billions frames per second?

Lund University in Sweden has created a camera that can capture images at the rate of five trillion images per second.  That is fast enough to capture moment within 0.2 trillionths of a second.  What would you use it for?

The team at Lund University say that the camera is very useful for capturing “explosions, plasma flashes, turbulent combustion, brain activity in animals and chemical reactions.”

Lund Team Leader Elias Kristensson had this to say, "Today, the only way to visualize such rapid events is to photograph still images of the process. You then have to attempt to repeat identical experiments to provide several still images which can later be edited into a movie. The problem with this approach is that it is highly unlikely that a process will be identical if you repeat the experiment."
