Every now and then, a timelapse comes around that completely blows our minds. This morning we were delighted to wake up to an email from Matt Maniego who linked us to his timelapse that took an entire year to create. Think about that for a second: most photographers barely stick to their 365 projects–and this is a timelapse.
Matt shot areas all over San Francisco for this video and called it “Paradise” because he feels that the city is very much a paradise to him. The video indeed takes you all around the city during the night and day. And overall, its beauty and execution is alluring.
Last year I visited San Francisco and loved it. The Vimeo blog recently featured this stunning time lapse from Simon Christen. Simon spent two years trying to create this: and it involved waking up at 5AM, looking at weather forecasts, and loads more planning. There was also lots of failure involved where the fog would be too high, too low, or gone sometimes.
But it all paid off quite well for him. Take a look and prepare to be astonished after the jump.
The Nikon D7000 is a sturdy camera of modest size (for a DSLR). With easy creative controls, a wide dynamic range, great autofocus, and a wide selection of available lenses, it’ll make a great vacation camera. To the classic Nikon “prosumer” niche (think D70, D80, D90…) the D7000 adds fun, easy, and respectable video recording, with autofocus and optional manual control. It’s a great camera for a day in the city, which is exactly how we’ve tested it on Day 4!
