Back in September, we shared an 8K timelapse shot using the Nikon D850 in Iceland. Nikon has just released this new 8K time-lapse that shows what the D850 can do at night.
This 1.5-minute promo film is titled “Hercules Rising” and was shot by Dutch nature photographer Marsel van Oosten. An alternate version of the film was released as well alongside a couple of other short clips demonstrating the DSLR’s nighttime abilities.
“Hercules Rising” was shot under moonlight in Namibia in southern Africa using the D850’s 8K Time-Lapse abilities, which captures 45-megapixel still photos at regular intervals. You can then stitch the photos together using time-lapse creation software of your choice, resulting in an 8K resolution time-lapse.
Nikon converted the original 8K timelapse to 4K prior to uploading it to YouTube. (The Iceland timelapse we shared in September was uploaded in its full 8K glory).
