Genuinely amazing 10K timelapse demo

If you thought HD cropping from 4K images provides a decent amount of flexibility for reframing images, check out this 10K timelapse demo. It’s shot at 10,328 x 7,760 using a PhaseOne IQ180 camera in and around Rio De Janeiro by photographer Joe Capra.

As he explains, “Each shot is comprised of hundreds of individual still images, each weighing in at a whopping 80 megapixels. Each individual raw frame measures 10328x7760 pixels.”

In this five minute film, Capra first presents the full resolution image, scaled down to fit 1920x1080 (14% scale). He then zooms in to 50% of the image, and then to 100%. And the detail in the shot is still absolutely incredible.

Capra estimates you can get around eight to 10 1920x1080 shots from a single 10K image, or five to six 4K shots.

It’s very impressive indeed.

3m30s pop promo shot in just five seconds

This is really impressive. It’s described by the makers as the “shortest shooting ever” - a 3m30s pop promo shot from a car driven at 50Km/h in just five seconds using the Phantom Flex 4K camera.

In an industrial area of France in autumn last year, writer/director Guillaume Panariello placed 80 extras along an 80 metre stretch of road and filmed at 1000 frames/second from the car while the extras set about different tasks, such as lighting a barbecue, talking on the phone, shooting confetti into the air, using light sabres, etc.

Panariello says the slowed down footage, stretched over the length of the promo creates a “dreamlike mural”, which it’s hard to disagree with.

It’s a shame the song is so uninspiring - Unconditional Rebel from French artist Siska is retro trip-hop by numbers, sounding at best like a Portishead or Morcheeba B-side from the early 90s.
