It seems that people are really loving the Canon 5D mk ii (5D2) for timelapse videos as well as using the tilt-shift lenses. We’ve got a couple today.
First, the Eiffel Tower in Paris just celebrated an anniversary!
This is a Timlapse Sequence of the 14th of July fireworks in Paris, France. It’s the anniversary of the French Revolution and also the 120th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower.
Around 700 000 people gathered in front of the monument to see the pyrotechnics following a free concert by Johnny Hallyday. The firework was on for a little more then half an hour in which we took around 6000 photos.

In another awesome timelapse with a tilt-shift, we see sumo wrestlers!
Sumo is a competitive contact sport where a wrestler (rikishi) attempts to force another wrestler out of a circular ring (dohyo) or to touch the ground with anything other than the soles of the feet. The sport originated in Japan, the only country where it is practiced professionally.
