The new Nikon D850 lets you create 8K timelapses using the 45.7-megapixel sensor and the built-in Interval Timer. If you’ve been wanting to see what 8K shot with the camera looks like, today’s your lucky day: we got our hands on the first 8K timelapse short film shot on the D850.

The 2.5-minute video above was captured by photographer and Nikon Ambassador Lucas Gilman in Iceland using a pre-production D850. If you somehow have an 8K-capable screen, be sure to select the 4320p/8K quality option in the video to watch it in its full glory.

Here’s an illustration showing how much more resolution 8K has than 4K, Full HD, and SD:

Gilman says he chose to test the camera’s 8K capabilities in Iceland due to the movements that can be seen everywhere in the landscapes and due to the microclimates that provide a huge amount of visual diversity even in a short amount of time.

The project was challenging though: there’s only a single sunrise and sunset you can capture each day, and each 3-4 second sequence in the video above took hours for Gilman to plan and shoot. He was planning to shoot night scenes as well, but Iceland’s days were 20 hours long while he was in the country.

OK, after having seen the incredible timelapse masterpiece covered in this post, one could think everything is said and done regarding timelapsing. Nobody needs to do it ever again. But wait, there is hope for the rest of us. Elysia Visuals have just introduced a neat little timelapse controller, the Ramper Pro 3.

Evolution of the Ramper Pro

The original Ramper Pro by Elysia Visuals, a company from the Netherlands, has been in the the hands of many timelapse shooters around the world for a couple of years now. The developers clearly believed it was time for an upgrade, so here comes the brand new version 3 of the Ramper Pro timelapse machine.

This new version makes it even easier to capture the so called holy grail of timelapsing, the transition from day to night or vice versa. In order to achieve this trick, the Ramper Pro 3 device takes full control over the connected camera (or even 2 cameras at the same time), including an advanced light sensor for necessary measurements.

Time-lapse photographer Rufus Blackwell spent the last 2 months taking the DJI Osmo handheld stabilized camera around Saigon, Vietnam. The 3-minute video above is what resulted.


“Because the camera is so steady, you can create hyperlapse sequences from shooting video, a completely new way of creating a moving timelapse,” Blackwell tells PetaPixel. “This allows you so much latitude in post, you can warp time. This was a highly experimental shoot, I was amazed by the results.”

“We present a method for converting first-person videos, for example, captured with a helmet camera during activities such as rock climbing or bicycling, into hyperlapse videos: time-lapse videos with a smoothly moving camera.”
