Behind the Scenes of This Amazing 12K Timelapse with the Phase One XF 100MP

by planetMitchLeave a Comment

Joe Capra has done some great things and we’ve featured him several times but I keep going back to the 12k shoot he did with the Phase One XF 100MP.

It is gorgeous and fascinating to watch as the shots pull in and out with amazing clarity.

Make sure you read our previous planet5D article about the original video (which is included below as well) The Phase One XF 100MP .

But it is great to also have the behind-the-scenes (below the video) because we learn a bit more about how easy it is. Which raises a question… do you normally shoot some b-roll while you’re making a project so you can have some behind-the-scenes to share with people? If not, you should!


12K Timelapse with the Phase One XF 100MP – Behind the scenes

Via Youtube Description:

Follow Joe Capra of, in this behind the scenes video about his production of the PHASED | LA Timelapse video shot natively in 12K resolution entirely on the Phase One XF IQ3 100 megapixel camera.

That is three times the resolution of existing 4K Ultra HD content, and each and every single frame of this film is 100 megapixels. With the latest software update to the XF system Phase One added a new timelapse mode which allows users to easily shoot extreme resolution timelapses. Having the ability to shoot in such extreme resolution allows you much more creative freedom and flexibility in post production, and this film's purpose is to demonstrate that. You can punch in extremely far into a scene while maintaining massive amounts of detail.
