A video I made in Beijing. I had recently broken an arm and couldn't use full-size cameras, so I went around doing time lapses with a 7d at night.

The first few time lapses are standard, but they get progressively more and more crazy.

The compression on this vimeo version is pretty bad. With the picture changing so quickly in every frame, the compression knocks out a lot of detail and color space. The original uncompressed 1080p version is much, much cleaner and nicer looking.

I wrote an article about the shooting on dslrnewsshooter.com/2010/12/28/nathan-mauger-shoots-captivating-timelapse-of-beijing-on-a-canon-eos7d/

Music is the Fatboy Slim song "Ya Mama" from the album "Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars."
