Originally founded in 1325, Greater Mexico City has since become one of the largest metropolitan areas on earth, and the largest in the Western Hemisphere, housing more than 21 million people.
Amongst those 21 million people who call Mexico City their home is Tarsicio Sañudo. As an aerial filmmaker, he decided to shoot a drone timelapse of the city to document its iconic landmarks and beautiful surroundings. And boy does it look amazing.
There’s something magical about soap bubbles, but watching them freeze raises the magic to a whole new level.

And watching the ice crystals as they form on the delicate bubbles’ surface is as wonderful to watch, as it is difficult to film.
We seem to have gone from “The megapixal wars” to “The K wars” since video started to become more popular in DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. Even the D850 was promoted as an “8K” camera for shooting timelapse, and now we’re starting to see more and more video cameras with a native 8K resolution. And we’ve seen 12K timelapse from the Phase One XF IQ3 100MP.
Well, move aside, because filmmaker Martin Lisius has now created Prairie Wind, a 16K HDR timelapse. It was created using a pair of Canon EOS 5DS cameras with Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art lenses, two Canon 85mm f/1.8 USM lenses and a custom built mount to shoot the two side-by-side.
In fall of 2017, I had the opportunity to capture the transformation of an empty plot of land turning into a high-tech vehicle test track. The bulk of the construction would take place for about a year. My friend and colleague, Ryan, and I were tasked with capturing that transformation into a timelapse video.
We wanted a high-up vantage point to place a camera. The site is at an airport, so there was a nearby airline hangar where we had access to the roof. With that established as our best vantage point, we had to decide what kind of camera to use.
Timelapse and hyperlapse aficionado Kirill Neiezhmakov has been creating some pretty amazing films over the last few years.
