Cool time-lapse and tilt-shift Singapore video

Pretty fun to watch and share with people back home who have never come to visit. (Especially us Americans with passport-less friends that think we live in China!)

Wow, impressive!

I'm totally lost when it comes to cameras and photography, but what kind of effect is it he used that gave that "toy store" effect?

It's called tilt-shift because the lens is tilted (and shifted) a bit, focusing on only bits of the image as if focusing on very little items.

Given the amount of images (whole video was time lapse), however, the tilt-shift effect was obviously faked using software. Over several images. In predefined sequences.

Neat video still. :)

Yeah, he posted a "howto" or tech explanation somewhere. Can't find it now. He did both he said, a lot of it was lens effects, but some was software. You can kind of tell which is which if you look carefully. The 'walls of blur' (and I don't mean groups of people walking through MRT stations) you see seem to be the post-production stuff.
