Filippo Rivetti’s time-lapse of Sydney, filmed on Canon’s EOS 5D Mark III and EOS 7D digital SLRs, is absolutely beautiful. The video is filled with slow, sweeping shots of Bondi Beach, Sydney Harbour, the Bridge and general city life, shot from some rare vantage points.
Rivetti shot from the top of the Four Seasons Hotel and Sydney Tower, getting access to some views that aren’t often captured in such stunning detail and vivid colour. The tilt-shift effect wasn’t done in-camera, though, since the lenses used were Canon’s regular 16-35mm F2.8 and 70-200mm F2.8 zooms, as well as the 24mm F1.4 and Zeiss 50mm F1.4 primes. Thank Adobe’s After Effects for that smooth, miniaturising blur. [Vimeo]
