This Mind-Blowing Panoramic Timelapse of L.A. Was Shot over Two Years with Two DSLRs (VIDEO)

We’ve featured the stunning work of Joe Capra before but the incredible panoramic timelapse of Los Angles that he shot over a two-year period could be his most spectacular video yet. Titled "Pano L.A.," the six-minute timelapse was captured entirely in true panoramic form using two synced Canon 5D Mark III DSLRs side by side.

The resulting panoramic footage came in at a massive 10K x 4K resolution when stitched together.  

“Shooting panoramic timelapse was something I had always wanted to do,” Capra says on the Scientificfantastic Vimeo page. “I love panoramic images and wanted to bring that look to timelapse, and I wanted to do it proper, not by faking it by just cropping the top and bottom of regular timelapse shots. I gave it a try many years ago but was never able to get the images from the two cameras to sync properly and get the images to stitched together correctly.”

If you really want to enjoy it, watch it in full screen at full HD. And it’s to Capra’s credit that he even makes Los Angeles’ notorious traffic look gorgeous. :-)

Here’s a list of the gear he used:

• Two Canon 5D Mark III DSLRs
• Two of each: Canon 24-70mm, 24-105mm, and 70-200mm lenses

• Custom build panoramic rig

• RamperPro

• Custom dual trigger intervalometer
• Motion Control:
