Maybe I'm just too close to the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, but it seems to me that people are just constantly pushing the edge with this camera! The other day, I ran into this amazing timelapse done with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II…
Ross Ching (the author of this work – who by the way is a currently unemployed Director/Cinematographer who is looking for work – check out his resume for more info!) has put this together over a period of two weeks (according to his post on his site).
“For this video, I pulled out every time lapse, stop motion and live action camera trick that I could think of. It took me about 2 weeks. The goal was to create a fresh, new direction to take my work to. The Eclectic Series has fared well, but that was all in the past. Itâ€™s time to look ahead. Live action narrative is where I would truly like to be producing content, but on the internet, itâ€™s just too difficult to stand out from the pack making movies with a video camera. Moreover, time lapse and tilt-shift (shot with a still camera) are becoming more and more prevalent on the internet. Therefore I spent weeks and weeks to come up with a new, original idea and landed on this concept.”
Ross has more info on how he timed and recorded the video which you really should read over on his blog. There are also larger sizes to download on his site as well!
