24 Hour London

Atunci când crezi că le-ai văzut pe toate, vine câte un ultra-pasionat să-ți demonstreze contrariul. Un timelapse format din imagini de 7,3 gigapixeli? Desigur că se mișcă așa cum ne-am aștepta. Adică extrem de lent. Dar este printre primele astfel de experimente vizuale, și ne-a lăsat cu gura mască!

“The UK contact lens retailer Lenstore has released a 7.3-gigapixel “timelapse” of London. Titled 24 Hour London, the images show a view of England’s capital city over a period of 24 hours in February 2018.

TechRadar reports that the project was a collaboration between Lenstore, photographer Henry Stuart of Visualise, Nikon, and Canary Wharf Group.

24 individual 7.3-gigapixel (7,300MP) photos were created for each hour of the day using a total of 6,240 photos that were shot with the help of a robotic mount and then stitched together to form the larger ultra-resolution shots. When played through, the 24 photos form a one-of-a-kind “gigalapse” that shows a day passing in London with a ridiculous amount of detail.

Stuart shot the photos with a Nikon D850 and its 45-megapixel full-frame sensor paired with a Nikon 300mm f/2.8 lens, TechRadar reports. This camera kit gave each individual photo a great deal of reach: you can read the words on signs located 5 miles away.

Here’s the resulting 24-photo timelapse that you can explore through an interactive viewer”
