    Thanks David.
    Thanks very spectacular. I had no problems with the music.

    In the end you get amazing time lapse photography, a worn out camera and a
    very tried photographer (grin).

  3. This is VERY sharp video, and spectacular camera-in-motion
    time-lapse videography of SPECTACULAR scenes AND events!
    I wonder how it could have been streamed - the detail-level
    is VERY high! I listened only to a short bit of the audio
    and decided that it detracted more than it added to the
    visuals (for me), so I turned it off... The video is a
    collection of "snippets", but VERY amazing ones - but a
    bit more editing (not TOO much...!) may have resulted in a
    smoother flow... The clips were of very limited duration
    for obvious reasons, but still....;-)
    The first and third certainly, but some of the mirrorless
    cameras now have electronic shutters in addition to their
    mechanical ones, and these likely would not wear out. But
    this video certainly represents a "heroic-scale" project,
    and one that is quite wonderful to watch!

    I was wondering if he got lucky with the lightning or maybe added it as an
    effect to the photos afterwards.
    You would need to travel a large distance to get a 360 degree time lapse
    shot like he did.
    I must take a look at his web site.

    WATCH THIS! (but turn off the sound...;-) Watch it
    I love scenery videos and that is one of the best. I wonder what kind of
    camera equipment he used for it. I looked on his web site but didn't see
    any mention of the gear.

  6. The other URL works fine, but several people
    didn't know how to use it... Here is a shorter
    version of the URL:



    When you get there, click on the box-like thing
    to the right of the blue "HD" to make it
    full-screen...

  7. I was a bit(!) overloaded with the detail, but what the heck...I found
    it to be very compelling stuff.

    An interesting effect was a very realistic 3D illusion[1] in certain of
    the clips where the camera was moving, especially when nearer objects
    occulted more distant objects. No glasses needed (nor would they work,
    of course).

    [1] Not really an illusion - parallax in motion is a significant part
    of our stereo perception - it even works for (at least some) one-eyed
    people. That's how they can drive...Actually, at such distances, that's
    also how two-eyed people can drive - the parallax between the eyes
    isn't enough to create stereo vision at larger distances.

  9. "Otherwise known as":
    it appears to be a series of carefully-prepared stills, shot
    with time-lapse using what is likely a still camera with a
    VERY good lens on it, and likely using a portable track with
    perhaps an "escapement" mechanism to slowly move the camera
    up/down/along the track. While this is not new, what IS new
    is the ability to stream imagery over the internet with this
    much detail! I wanna know how THAT was done!!! I've had
    problems getting just detailed stills into video on Blu-ray,
    when the images lasted seconds each rather than just fractions
    of a second each, even at data rates up to 40Mbps. I've had
    to soften the images to make dissolves not cause disturbances
    in the images (maybe THAT'S why there are no transitions in
    the Wyoming video...;-).
