Interesting, didn't mention that in dark enviroments the human eye also switches over to its set of B/W rods/cones which means it gives up color capability for better contrast.

The shutter speed thing is also very cool, I thought I heard once that human frame rate is somewhere like 100-1000 FPS depending on the situation, and person. Maybe someone knows?

You can actually process and be affected by images that are displayed to quickly to be consciously aware of. Psychologists use tachistoscopes to do this in experiments. You can readily recognize images at 1/100 but your brain can process images that are only say 50 ms (1/20,000) without you even being aware that you saw it. There are some claims that with training certain people can recognize strings of numbers at 1/300,000.
