    That happens because of the digital camera.

    Yeah, it's basically an artifact from digital processing and the way the cameras scan the image

    Then let me elaborate.

    The camera's sensor is made out of a grid of pixels. As the sensor is exposed to light the camera's software scans the sensor row by row and in this case I would guess top to bottom.

    Because of the rotation of the blades, which is fast enough, as the camera captures row after row it will get the blade in a slightly different location making it looked like the blade is flexible.
