Awesome Canon EOS 5D Mark II Space Shuttle timelapse

I’ve always been a space program junkie – ever since I was a little kid watching the Apollo moon landings, and now that the Shuttle program is winding down, @tylerginter showed me this beautiful timelapse of the Space Shuttle Discovery’s trip from the final processing center out to the pad and thru the launch.

From the Smithsonian’s Air and Space site:

“photographers Scott Andrews, Stan Jirman and Philip Scott Andrews condense six weeks of painstaking work into three minutes, 52 seconds”

(note, there’s no sound until the end)

There’s a post over on the Smithsonian’s Air and Space site discussing how they did it. The article doesn’t specifically mention the 5D2, but Tyler mentioned to me that they used the Canon EOS 5D Mark IIs to make the timelapse.

    I love this stuff! I really love the angel with the shuttle being raised and the external tank and SRBs in the background!

    Thanks for the post!
