Georgetown on a Saturday

Last week, GM bought a new camera. This one’s got video capabilities, so he took it out for a spin last weekend. One of the features is the gimmicky faux-tilt shift effects, which makes the image look like a miniature, and speeds it up to enhance the ant-like effect. Like HDR, it’s very easy to overuse. But it’s fun for a little bit.

Anyway, enjoy scenes of a Georgetown Saturday afternoon set to the sweet sounds of the Dave Brubeck Quartet.

  1. Very cool little video. What camera did you use that has the built-in shift effect?

    Aren’t YOU the auteur! Bravo, G.M. Spielberg.

  3. Great! At that shutter speed you could record 24 hours in about 30 minutes.

    Love the C&O barge coming thru the bridge.

    MSRE: it’s a Nikon D5100. Sort of the slightly cheaper version of the D7000. Same guts, slightly different trim.

    Dave: thanks. Actually the time is only about 6-7 times faster, so a 24 hour recording would still be a couple hours long. The camera also has time lapsed photography, which can do something more like reducing 24 hours to 30 seconds. I’ll probably experiment with that at some point too.
