See Hong Kong in this pretty psychedelic timelapse and hyperlapse video

hong kong

Kirill Neiezhmakov made a timelapse and hyperlapse video of Hong Kong. This is for sure not your typical timelapse video. It’s a timelapse and hyperlapse video with a decent dose of psychedelic elements.

The video was made using two Canon EOS 60D, an Canon EOS 70D, Sigma 10-20mm f/4.0-5.6, Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8, Samyang 8mm f/3.5, Canon EF 17-55mm f/2.8, Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L and a GoPro Hero 4. Adobe After Effects, Lightroom and LRTimelapse have been used for post-processing.

Time for a round-up of Canon EOS 5D Mark IV-related information.

ePhotozine reviewed the EOS 5D Mark IV, an excerpt:

Dual Pixel Raw works well, but the difference can be quite subtle, and time-consuming if you want to get the best out of it, for example, stacking shots for sharper macro photos, as all processing must be done on your computer and can’t be done on the camera. It would be better to use live view focus and the touch screen to get the photo right in camera in the first place (and here technologies such as face-detection, and eye-detection focus help in other camera brands). It would be nice if the screen tilted, particularly as using live-view for stills and video has become much more useful, and usable, with vastly improved live view focusing speeds.

In-depth 5D Mark IV Review – Probably not worth upgrading if you have a 5D Mark III, by DIY Photography (videos below)

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV sample image gallery at Amateur Photographer Reviews the Canon 5D Mark IV, by LensRentals. An excerpt:

So is the Canon 5D Mark IV a worthy upgrade? Yes….yes it is. Canon managed to combine what we loved about the Canon 5d Mark III, and improved on it in every metric. The autofocus is better, the camera is faster, the video functionality has improved, the lowlight has been improved, and there are plenty of additional features to set it apart. The Canon 5d Mark IV is an exceptional camera and fixes a lot of practical issues I’ve had with previous models.
