Berlin Hyper-Lapse Is Almost More Stunning Than Visiting It In Person

If you're getting bored of the traditional timelapse tour of a major metropolitan city, this hyper-lapse run through Berlin should reinvigorate your passion for virtual tourism. Its frantic crash zooms and warped panoramic shots are the video equivalent of HDRI photography. Except, you know, not horribly unappealing to the eye.

Shot with a Nikon D7000 over a six day visit to Berlin, Vimeo user b-zOOmi had to track and stabilize many of the shots by hand in After Effects since they were manually moving and repositioning the camera between shots on location. As a result, a lot of the sequences look almost computer generated. But it's just a result of the extreme movements and bizarre parallax shifts that make this hyper-lapse look beyond real.
