2008 in 40 seconds

One year in 40 seconds from Eirik Solheim on Vimeo.
A real dope Time laspe video.It really felt like the year passed this fast.
Eirik Solheim, who set up his Canon 400D (a relatively low-cost digital SLR, also known as the Canon Digital Rebel XTi) and took this remarkable time-lapse sequence showing 2008 passing by in a mere 40 seconds.
How did he do it?! He says, “I found a spot outside that gave more or less the same framing each time I placed my camera.”
He stacked up all those frames in Photoshop, which has the ability to automatically align stacks of images. Next, he lined up the pictures in video editing software Final Cut Express, overlapping dissolves for that smooth effect.

The guy is awesome. Kudos to Eirik!
