10328×7760 – A 10K Timelapse Demo from SCIENTIFANTASTIC on Vimeo.
It seems only last year when everyone was raving about 4K, even platforms like Youtube supported the format.
However, technology is advancing at an impressive and rapid rate; take PhaseOne IQ180 camera that incredibly films in 10K. Joe Capra – or Scientfantastic – has debunked 4K video, and will the reason why every camera enthusiast will ask for the new PhaseOne camera for Christmas, thanks to his breathtaking time-lapse video of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
The video entitled, ‘10328×7760 – A 10K Timelapse Demo‘, pretty much sums up the video. In the video description, Capra explains “This footage comes from some shots I did while shooting 4K and 8K timelapse in Rio De Janeiro for a major electronics manufacturer.” He continues “Each shot is comprised of hundreds individual still images, each weighing in at a whopping 80 megapixels. Each individual raw frame measures 10328×7760 pixels.”
The video shows the camera’s in-depth detail while slowly increasing the video’s scale. The extremely zoomed footage is as good or maybe better than most high-end HD cameras.
“I wanted to show a couple [of] things with this demo video,” Capra explains. “First, the extreme resolution of this camera (and medium format in general). Second, the amazing amount of flexibility this resolution allows for in post production. You can literally get about 8-10 solid 1920×1080 shots out of a single shot. You can also get about 5-6 solid 4K shots out of a single shot.”
The picture that created this video is that gorgeous with pixels that most of you screen at home won’t be able to appreciate the beautiful detail in this video. So, what are you waiting for? Put the video above on full screen and get a real grasp of Rio De Janeiro.
