Timelapse galore! These will knock your socks off

by planetmitch6 Comments

I don't know how we can keep this up… these new timelapse movies are just mindblowing! Not only do we have them from the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, but now, thanks to Philip Bloom, we have the first Canon EOS 7D timelapse (see at the bottom).

First up, we have a brand new timelapse from tom@timescapes.com. We previously highlighted his amazing movie back in April. Before we get to the video here in the blog, let me INSIST you go download the full size video on Vimeo (it will take a while, but it is well worth it!!!! – you must be a vimeo member but you can join for free). This is Tom's new stunner:

I'm working on a big 9-minute follow-up to “Learning to Fly”, but it won't be ready till next summer. Meantime, here are some shots from my trip in August to California's White Mountains and Yosemite, all shot on the Canon 5D2.

These are sequences from my first film – “These Short Days” – currently in production. If anyone happens to know a good producer or production company who might be willing to help shepherd this film to completion next Fall, I would really appreciate an introduction. Much thanks!

Some behind-the-scenes vids showing how I did several of these shots:

The other day, we also found this blazing video of San Francisco and surrounding areas on laughingsquid

Footage I shot over the summer of 2009 mostly in the San Francisco bay area.

And on the Canon EOS 7D, Philip Bloom has submitted this first known timelapse done with the 7D:

I love my timelapse and this is the first time I have used the still function of the 7d (or 5d for that matter) for this.

It's really easy to do.

  2. The time lapse are cool, but I dont understand why people use a 5D for doing them when the light level is high. A hacked G7 does the job as good (actually, better) and it does not wear out the shutter.

  5. Great time-lapses! Here is one of my beginners time-lapses of clouds passing over a valley and a lake, created using Nikon D40 tethered to a laptop: bit.ly/13EQCF
