To me, the biggest capability of the Genie that separates it from other time lapse and live action motion control devices is its ability to run long distance cable cam shots – there is no other device on the market that can do this.
But, in order to run a cable cam sequence – you first need a cable cam cart.
In this article, I will share the details of my DIY hyperlapse cable cam cart that I built for use with the Syrp Genie.
Time to get out all the first-person footage you captured with your GoPro, but never touched, as Microsoft finally released its Hyperlapse technology.
Capable of turning standard lengthy videos into smooth and stabilized time lapses, you can expect to see a significant bump in time lapse videos in the near future.
The software is available in one form or another to Windows, Windows Azure, Windows Mobile and Android users.
Microsoft seems thrilled about the release; just don’t confuse it with Instagram’s Hyperlapse app.
Instagram is making it easy for everyone with an iPhone to become timelapse creators with the new app it announced today, which the social photo sharing giant has dubbed Hyperlapse. In it’s infancy, Hyperlapse was nothing more than a side project a few developers from the Instragram camp decided to take on for the fun of it; however, the underdog of an app got its big break as it started circulating around the Instagram offices winning the hearts of all the employees. The positive reaction the app garnered among their own motivated Instagram to go public with it. A move, I suspect, will pay off big for the company given the popularity of it’s namesake app.
The app allows iPhone 5 users to capture up to 45 minutes of video footage to be converted into a hyperlapse all within the app. iPhone & iPod Touch 4 users can also use the app, but will be limited to 10 minute capture times. According to Hyperlapse Technical Support page, all devices must be running iOS 7 or later.[Read More…]
While on a holiday in Portugal to accept a Best Timelapse award for his incomparably brilliant Moscow Night Timelapse/Hyperlapse, Kirill Neiezhmakov, like any good photographer, seized the opportunity to create his next treasure, Portugal Hyperlapse/Timelapse. Neiezhmakov is making a name for himself among timelapse and hyperlapse photography enthusiasts as one of the art forms leading filmmakers, and rightfully so. He has the uncanny ability to create his new magnum opus with every timelapse he puts out. This Lisbon and Sesimbra, Portugal are no exception.
Upon arriving in Lisbon from his home in Ukraine, Neiezhmakov, contacted Portugal based image maker, Francesco Cerruti for a helping hand in the making of the timelapse. The team traveled to multiple points of interest to make the film, capturing landmarks such as Eduardo VII Park (1:12), Arrábida Sesimbra (0:15) Rossio (1:02), and my personal favorite part of the timelapse, inside and underwater at The Oceanarium in Park of The Nations (1:33). Take a look:
Timelapse and hyperlapse photographer, Patrick Cheung, has just completed his latest timelapse project, a music video for a Hong Kong based hip hop group, utilizing some really awesome hyperlapse techniques. Take a look at the music video below, then keep reading for a video tutorial where Cheung teams up with Kai from DigitalRev to show us exactly how to replicate the hyperlapse shots using nothing more than equipment you probably already have.[Read More…]
Last week, we wrote about how researchers at Brown developed a code that would allow realistic weather alterations in photo-editing through text commands. As fate would have it, the new trend these days is apparently groundbreaking algorithms. Two days ago, a video was uploaded showcasing Microsoft’s latest advancement in photography; using first-person-view cameras, researchers for the company developed an algorithm that makes what they call a hyperlapse. Watching the video, you’ll probably find yourself surprised by just how fluid everything almost looks. Keep reading after the break; seeing how it’s done is just as rewarding.
For anyone who has ever seen those shots where it looks like the subject of the scene stays the same size but the background recedes away, this video is a quick tutorial that explains how to achieve the shot in camera.
The video above is more detailed but here is the summary.
Armand Dijcks posted a pretty interesting method for doing Hyper Lapses over on the Preston Kanak blog. While usually we see hyper lapses made with hundreds of photos (roughly 24 per second) held by a tripod, this one is a bit different and manages to span full 11 seconds using only 7 frames.
A week ago we featured a Hyperlapse primer that explains how to use a tripod and a boardwalk to create a Hyperlapse.
Griffin of Indy Mogul (which is a great resource) shares another great Hyperlapse tutorial with going into the nitty-gritty details going from methods to move the camera while doing a Hyperlapse, through camera settings and stabilization comparison and finally stabilizing the finished product in After effects.
The movie plus a few of Griffin’s favorite and inspirational Hyperlapses after the jump.[Read More…]
