The timelapse movie below is simply stunning, detailing China’s 60th Anniversary National Day in a way that is both beautiful and yet slightly chilling (the tanks) at the same time:

China’s 60th Anniversary national day – timelapse and slow motion – 7D and 5DmkII from Dan Chung on Vimeo.

The movie was created by Dan Chung of The Guardian using a 7D at 720p/60 for the slow motion sequences and Canon Eos5DmkII / Nikon D700 for the timelapses. The final sequence was edited in Final Cut Pro.

Dan is one of the best in the business, something we are proud of as we went to college with him while he was starting out taking photographs, for more details on how the movie was shot, head over to
