You might want to go full-screen for this one, folks.
In this fascinating time-lapse demonstration by Los Angeles-based photographer Joe Capra, we're taken on a tour of some of the most breathtaking views of Rio de Janeiro. This is more than your typical tourist snapshots, though. Captured with an 80-megapixel PhaseOne IQ180 camera, each individual RAW photo in this time-lapse measures an astounding 10328 x 7760 pixels.
No worries if your screen's resolution doesn't even come anywhere near that, though. Capra zooms in during the demo to help viewers understand the dizzying magnitude of the time-lapse's resolution. It's pretty darn amazing to see a vast, bustling landscape shrink down into an intimate street view (like at 1:06).
On his Vimeo page, Capra writes about his motivation behind this fascinating time-lapse demo:
