Thanks :)  I am glad you like it.

It's tiny because I set up 600px resolution for the deviant, the original file available for prints is 5780x3858.

I just can't believe your EXIF data :D What lens has 0mm focal length? :D :D :D (Perhaps an incompatible glass with adaptor?)

That's an HDR image :)

As for the film "but it is annoyingly tranquile sometimes" It is the first time lapse meant for relaxation, so it does serve its purpose for all of my YT channel subscribers :)

Thanks you for the input and have  a great holiday season

My HDR softwares kill the EXIF AFAIK, that's why I was surprised. :) I suspected some exotic lenses that usually foul the camera's self-consciousness and make them state imaginary things. :)

About tranquility: that's why I don't go fishing. That is so calm that drives me bananas. :D :D :D But the film is good indeed, and really relaxing. (Some scenes a bit over-saturated, but well, that's the fashion nowadays, so why not?) I like those scenes where the streams of clouds go diffenent directions on different heights. Locations are also beautiful. I just wondered how many pictures you had to take for it???

I am glad you like the film :) The final video has around 35-36 thousand shots but according to my Canon DSLR (I bought it new specifically for this film), the total shot count is over 120K. The thing is, you shoot way more than you use...

Just as I suspected... film making is an expensive sport. As far as I remember, 5D mkIII has a shutter life expextancy of 150k clicks. Thanks to the robust Canon hardwares, they can live longer usually (I've seen 5D mkII with 250k+ expos, still kicking with the original shutter)... Only the camera body is around 3,000 bucks. I will stay at still photography, I think. :D I wish you earn back the costs and will make many beautiful films like that! :) 

Okay, refurbishing the shutter costs far less than buying a new body and most of the moving and wearing parts are affordably replaceable, so the costs are not equal to a new camera.

I totally forgot, It was not the HDR software that messed up EXIF data. There is a method to avoid flicker in time lapses that I use when you slightly twist and disconnect the lens and stop the iris in the desired F stop. Your EXIF will show 0 in this case.

The shutter life Canon reported has nothing to do with my way of using the camera. Canon tests shutters under the most severe environments, so I bet my Mark III wi;ll make it past 300k clicks because I do take a good care of it :)

It usually takes a couple of years if not more for the film to even up the expenses and start making a profit, I do it for my own passion without $$$$ in mind.

Oh, sure, I remember. I used it once when I tried a time lapse video (just for fun, about a minute to see what does it feel to make one) and my camera body reported error after a 100 shots or so. (I don't really understand why the Canon cameras don't have an option to fix the aperture in a certain position... It was handy not only for time lapse but panoramic shots, too. And there must be other uses, too, that I don't remember now. :) )

My previous EOS 500D is well over the 70k (it is reported to built for 50k) and shooting happily and precisely. (I changed to 7D already for its speed "against" my favourite birdies :D ) So your estimation is highly reasonable.

It is fine if you do it with passion and other's benefits in mind, take my bow. But I think most of the photographers (especially hobbyists) do something like that. And if you ask whether it worth all the efforts to give good pictures to other people, I think I'd say yes. :D

"I don't really understand why the Canon cameras don't have an option to fix the aperture in a certain position"

Canon simply doesn't care. I watch many BBC documentaries where they have scenic time lapse shots and guess what, almost half of them have noticible flicker and other artifacts like noise and even shakes and unlevelled horizon. I know I have artifacts on my footage too but at least I try to eliminate it. The professional guys from BBC on the other hand don't mind.
