Patrick Kizny shot this HDR sequence inside an 18th century chapel in Poland. Whether you like HDR or not, you have to appreciate the amount of work that went into this production – particularly, how smooth the slider shots were for the timelapse sequences.
He used a number of different cameras, but primarily relied on the 5D Mark II for the timelapse shots due to its high resolution. If you are interested in more about how he made it, check out the behind the scenes video below.
A detailed description of the post-production timelapse HDR workflow can be found on the Looky Creative blog.

Tom Guilmette put together this great video of his night alone with a Phantom Flex camera in a Vegas hotel room. This camera captures 2,564fps at a 1080p native resolution.
While the footage the camera produces is stunning in its own manner, Tom’s editing makes the resulting video (and audio) just plain fun. Check out Tom’s story behind the video (and why he was doing this in Vegas hotel room) over on his blog.
