Why Do Cameras Do This?

What's the difference between these two pictures? The one on the left was taken by a high-speed camera, while the one on the right was taken by a scanning digital camera (in a phone). You can see the rolling shutter effect in action while the camera scans. That doesn't mean the pictures weren't further manipulated, if you notice the text on the propellor blades.
