Hyperlapse From a Window Seat
We're flying out to Austin for South by Soutwest tomorrow, and this would be something neat to try out. Photographer Matthew Vandeputte created this "hyperlapse" video from stills shot on a plane ride over Australia. As he explains on his blog, the hyperlapse is similar to a time-lapse, but instead of photographing a scene from a fixed location, his sequential shots are captured from different positions with the camera aimed at the same spot. In his case, the airplane did all the moving for him. With his Canon 5D MKIII, continuous drive shoots up to 6 frames per second, which is plenty fast for stitching together into 24fps video. I also liked the idea of his shutter clicking incessantly during the flight, and am curious how many shots it took to compose each short clip. Something to possibly fly on my plane ride tomorrow!
