      I traveled all over my lovely country Oman in the last 2 years visiting 64 different locations in order to capture more than 15490 shoots to make this time lapse video. The whole project footage is captured using only one camera and one lens. I hope you will like it.

      Camera: Nikon D750
      Lens: Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR
      Motion control: Dynamic Perception NMX controller with DIY slider

      Adobe Premier, Adobe After Effects, Lightroom, LRTimelapse

      Very nicely shot but I don’t think the time lapse added anything to it. A straight 4K video shot in interesting light would have been just as good or better. Time lapse is not something a person can actually experience with their own eyes. Here it just added unnaturally speeded up cloud, sea and tree movements.

      Thank you for your input.
      Shooting raw photos instead of 4k video gives a lot of room to recompose and edit your shots when go back to your editing software. If you shoot 4k video you have to get it right from the beginning. If you had to crop it, it is not 4k any more, and you are limited in terms of colour correction compared to editing raw photos.

      Thank you

      Thanks for sharing the video. I thought the timelapse aspect of it was cool. Looks like a gorgeous place. I noticed some of the shoots where moving. When I film moving timelapse I use the Syrp Genie. What did you use?

      Thank you Utah Video Production

      I initially used diy slider that I built myself. I could not afford buying motion control system so I had to move the camera for few millimetres between shots to simulate shoot-move-shoot of an advanced motion control.

      Then I managed to buy Dynamic Perception controller with a stepper motor and I mounted it on a cheap carbon fiber slider that I bought from amazon.

      The shots from 1:00 to 1:09 where made manually and the rest with Dynamic Perception motion controller and motor.

      What, no way! That is really impressive that you manually did those moves. I just went back and they look really smooth. Good for you. Keep up the good work.
