Tokyo Bay Time Lapse

Looks best in HD and full screen.

This is the view from my old apartment in Konan, Minato-ku, Tokyo. Filmed in September 2006. Looking east towards Odaiba; Chiba is dimly visible on the horizon. The office building in the foreground is the Tokyo Regional Immigration Bureau (seen from above, this structure looks like a "batsu mark", but I'm sure that's just a coincidence...)

Colophon: I used my Nikon D70 to take one picture per minute for 16.5 hours. This resuled in 976 jpegs sized 2240x1488 pixels. I resized them to 1626x1080 pixels with iPhoto and merged them into a 196 MByte video file using ffmpeg and these instructions. The command was

ffmpeg -r 20 -i Img%04d.jpg -vcodec mjpeg -qscale 1 -an "Tokyo Bay Time Lapse.avi"
