On our way to Valencia, Spain. Realizing there’s a place here called “Torrent”. Guess it’s where the pirate bay have placed their servers?
Per Erik Sviland just published a video that combines the stuff. Timelapse and HDR. That high dynamic range effect usually just add an intense feeling of something kitschy. But because it really enhance the clouds it works well in a video like this.
Per Erik has also been kind enough to include a nice how-to explaining how he made this video on his blog.
And look no further. The best fisheye correction you can get is here. DXO analyze the different lenses in detail. On the specified camera. So you need to check if they have a module for your lens / camera combination. But if they have, DXO does the best corrections possible.

All sorts of corrections

Pretty impressive! But before you run out buying crappy lenses thinking that you can save everything in DXO, have a look at the same image snapped at f5.6:
Proper optics out there in the field is the best way to go. But so far I’m impressed with DXO. It’s worth the fisheye correction on my 15mm alone!
This week I will be speaking at the Nordic Media Festival in Bergen (Norwegian). I will mention some of my key experiences from the One Year in 40 seconds-video. Talk about the media industry and new services on the internet. And try to draw a picture of the most important trends.
In June I will be at the Open Video Conference (english). Talking about some of the work we have done at the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation. BitTorrent, Creative Commons etc.
I hope to see some of you there! But most of all:
For both presentations I am interested in thoughts and feedback. Any important trends or services I need to mention?
