Tiltshift + Timelapse + Canon EOS 5D Mark II = miniature magic

by planetmitch4 Comments

I'm sure many of you have noticed a trend, tiltshift lenses and timelapse movies making things look minature is hot. Ok, you don't have to have a Canon EOS 5D Mark II to make a cool timelapse miniature movie, but it helps.

This first one is “hot” on the twitter/youtube scale. I'm showing it from vimeo because their player puts the HD version in the right size for our blog, but it is on youtube in HD as well. If you're a member on vimeo (which is free as well) you can download full size videos as well as selecting smaller sizes if you're bandwidth constrained.

Mockmoon also posted this “Miniature City” about 3 months ago and we saw it, but weren't as impressed… he's learned a lot in that time we guess

UPDATE: June 13:

Tho shot with the Nikon D3, this is significant enough to add to the post. “Bathtub V” by Keith Loutit was just released. Keith is the master of the tilt and this is another of his beautiful works. Visit his other works on vimeo as well!

      That’s actually a good question as maybe many think that it is a ‘video’ function – when in reality, it is just a bunch of stills put together to make a movie. It is not usually done by taking video and then speeding it up… especially since with the 5D2 you can only shoot about 12 minutes of video at a time. Check out Tom’s timelapse that we highlighted some time ago and then maybe go to Tom’s site to see more about how they do it… blog.planet5d.com/2009/04/stunning-canon-5d-mark-ii-timelapse-video/
