This Spectacular Brisbane 'Hyperlapse' Is The Best Thing You'll See Today

If you have yet to enjoy a good timelapse this weekend, you can stop looking. This magnificent specimen, which does a great job of highlighting the splendour of various locations in Brisbane, should cover you for what’s left of Sunday… if not the rest of the week.

Composed by a Vimeo user with the handle “Daduxio”, the timelapse is composed of some 4500 photos, captured over a period of 43 days — though that also includes post-production on the video itself.

Daduxio, who (going by their profile) hails from Italy, arrived in Brisbane in early February and impressed by the sights, grabbed their Canon 5D Mark II and travelled through Queen Street Mall, Southbank and King George Square — just to name a few places — and snapped what can only be described as an absolute truckload of images.

The timelapse includeds a number of “hyperlapses” — according to Daduxio, this is just a regular timelapse, except the camera’s position “moves from a few centimetres to a few meters depending on the distance to the subject”. It’s a neat effect — there’s a backwards-travelling section at about the 1:15-mark that’s particularly wonderful.
