This 8K Moonlight Timelapse Was Shot on the Nikon D850


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).
