The Latest from Tokyo's darwinfish105

Our varied and lovely video selections include a healthy dose of Tokyo videographer darwinfish105's work: prior to this most recent offering he went all 360-degrees with the Tokyo time-lapsing, there's his Panasonic GH4 time lapse, the brain-squeezing Inception/Blade Runner lovechild known as Mirrored Tokyo, some Yokohama Romance, very cool time-lapsed dolly shots, the pillars of the Tokyo Monorail, and today's installment, adding a #4 to what we like to call the Tokyo Pastel Diorama Series (see also: #1 and #2 and #3 - all awesome).

New from darwinfish105:
"tilt shift time lapse TOKYO Observatories"

Shot from three popular Tokyo observation decks - Roppongi Hills, the World Trade Center, and Tokyo Telecom - this latest collection of lapses provides a really respectable overview of Tokyo's beating heart. And yep, we'll say it again: darwinfish105's videos should be projected onto the walls of super-cool nightclubs and enjoyed along with a smart cocktail.

The gear that made it happen:

  • Camera: Sony a7RII; Sony a7S (see our review)
  • Lenses: Nikon AI AF Nikkor 24mm f/2.8D; Nikon AI AF Nikkor 35mm f/2D; Nikon AI AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D

Aside from its rather unpleasant history, Roppongi Hills is famous for its shopping areas, large selection of nice restaurants, and its large esplanade where companies organize events all year long.

TokyoStreetView: Japanese Traditional Dolls (4K VIDEO)
Like an elaborate sculpture, it can take up to a year to make such a doll from start to finish. Due to the delicate nature of the materials involved and the time required for the paint to dry, doll masters pay close attention to humidity when working. They sometimes need up to a month to finish a doll’s head.

TokyoStreetView: Yurikamome Hyperlapse (4K VIDEO) - AkihabaraNews.com
What I personally like about the Yurikamome is that, because you are gliding above the ground and between buildings on a winding track, it feels as though you’re traveling through the city aboard some kind of hover car.
