The convergence of high resolution DSLR still photography with 1080p HD video is upon us.
And I haven’t found a better example of of this convergence bearing fruit than the Time Lapse in HD Channel on Vimeo. Combining High Dynamic Range photography with 1920×1080 resloution HD video at 60 frames per second provides a fresh, crystallized perspective of not just what in the world we are looking at, but how we are looking at it.
We are combining 35mm depth of field with (10 minutes a day over 13 days = 1min26sec)
and 3200 iso with a diffuse display of Zodiacal light in Namibia’s night sky
or morphing time into something that was just there a second ago
or figuring what the hell, let’s do 360 degrees already
and finally a broadcast network is catching on and putting the new on their air
So what does this mean? I suggest the future isn’t now, the future was yesterday. Now is when the rest of us are scrambling to figure out what we will upload tonight so tomorrow everyone else can see this world from a fresh, crystallized perspective. Again.
Hey you, strobists out there, got any input to this HD time lapse business?
