vimeo – time lapse in hd

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?

vimeo contacts – random awesomeness

It’s funny what videos you stumble onto when someone adds you as a contact on Vimeo.

Found this after Nick Wilcox-Brown added me as his contact. Maybe he found me from one of my recent FCProse tutorials…

…and so I checked out Nick’s recent likes and found David Hubert’s London video. Great to see another amazing clip shot exclusively with a Digital SLR still camera. I think Chad Richard’s tutorial is going to keep coming in handy, especially the bit on how to create an image sequence using Quicktime.
I especially like how David created pans and zooms in post (After Effects being his weapon of choice). Looks very realistic, very smooth, and the DSLR obviously provides the resolution to pull this off. Good luck zooming and panning without compromising resolution using DVX-100 under-cranks.
