    Got access to the media pit (well not a pit it was on the roof of the st kilda baths)

    Took a ~1.5 hour long timelapse with the canon 5d MKII

    couldnt get everyone in even with fisheye and/or 17-40

    here is the end result

    (note first time using adobe premiere and editing video)



    CC Very Welcome, will be uploading a HD one tonight but atm this took me 4 hours to encode....

    Looks good, cant wait for HD version!

    However I would say probably half its length (so double the playback speed) as it is a bit long.

    Ahh ok, Maybe find a radio edit of the song :)

    and yep, HD hurts the HDD space, but oh so sweet clarity.

    Bit of a shame the clouds only left as everyone was leaving.

    Got nothing to do with the photography/videography but that song is bloody annoying!

    I thought you did a good job, a pity that other tog was up there and got in the frame when you were panning.

    Could you even post up a much shorter HD video, I'd like to see what full 1080 video looks like from the 5DMk2.

    I know you're already encoding but you should try and get an original edit of that track; I can hear the lead in for Dukes of Windsor - The Others (TV Rock remix) towards the end. :)

    I love the concept and the execution was good! :thumbup:

    Nice one. Good to see others doing a bit of time-lapse.

    Only comment is that it's split half and half at the horizon leaving half if it effectively unused but I know it's a battle against converging lines when you tilt off horizontal. The way I deal with it is to compile at 16:9 because you can then crop top or bottom and pick a line of thirds.

    Questions though. Any reason why you used the video function as opposed to capturing regualar frames? What format does the camera store the video in?

    If you do further time-lapse, you might find your project more manageable with a sequence of stills as opposed to large video files. I still use a four year old P4-3gig with two gig of RAM and running XP and it handles my stuff at 8 megapixel fine. Takes forever to compile but that's time-lapse for you :)
