Sequence of photographs turned into a video.

ROUTE: Starting at Aldwych, along Fleet st to St Paul's Cathedral, to the Bank of England, to the Lloyd's and Gherkin buildings, then along Bishopsgate to London Wall, to the Museum of London, then finishing at Holborn Viaduct.
EQUIPMENT / METHOD: I used an Olympus EPL1 camera with a Panasonic Lumix 20mm f/1,7 pancake lens in continuous shot mode. I attached a fisheye lens for most of the footage to capture more scenery.

N.B. As the EPL1 doesn't take a shutter release cable I used a makeshift device that physically holds the shutter down. I turned my bike into a tripod dolly and wheeled it around London, with some bits taken fully hand hand for greater control [these are the more wobbly scenes].
SOFTWARE: I used quicktime pro to convert the image sequence into a video, then I edited the video using 'Open Shot Video Editor' [a free Linux program], then I used the deshaker plugin filter in Virtual Dub to smooth it out a bit.
MUSIC: I couldn't find a piece of music that fitted the video, so I made one myself. Hope you like it.

Here it is on Soundcloud:
