Hyperlapse Videos

This morning I showed you an insane Google Street View Hyperlapse video. But it's not the only hyperlapse out there -- here are five more examples of the form. Strap yourself in, it's gonna get crazy.


Here, views of Berlin as the camera spins and pivots around points of interest, often showing maps of the area displayed.

Hyperlapse 2012

Geoff Tompkinson creates a best-of reel from his 2012 timelapse and hyperlapse work. I love the interior museum shots starting around 0:41 -- I want to go to there.

The Lake

Another from Tompkinson, this focuses on Lake Hallstatt in Upper Austria. Beautiful, slow (even though it's timelapse), and peaceful. The night scenes starting at 1:49 are amazing, featuring a well-exposed night sky full of stars.

Moving Through the Hermitage

More from Tompkinson, a two-day visit to the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg. Now I really want to check it out -- the sculptures come across better in this video than they ever could in still images.

London, Christmas

Mattia Bicchi combines timelapse and hyperlapse techniques to give us a view of London at Christmas time. Sadly, no snow.

Vimeo is a goldmine of this stuff. I recommend Tompkinson's work especially.
