Venus Transit 2012 Sun Crossing Timelapse Compilation V11633

Only 16 days after an 80%+ partial solar eclipse in southern California, another interesting and even rarer event got the attention of JCMDI's cameras - A crossing of the planet Venus in front of the sun... Using an arc welding shield as a lens filter, a tripod-mounted Canon SX10-is was used to collect over 10,000 images in rapid succession, creating a series of time lapse sequences of this unusual event. The 20x Zoom (560mm in 35mm equivalent) and full resolution of the camera allowed for some decent digital panning as the sun crossed the frame in each sequence. A Canon 5D Mk2 was used for some of the live video, stills, and additional time lapse sequences (not shown here) which are soon to be uploaded on the JcmdiStockFootage channel. The soundtrack is "Lunar Seas (Alt-Rev Mix)" from the "StarSpin EP" CD by Technician (yours truly), MP3 album and single track available from Nimbit Records at: http://technician.jcmdi.com/starspin.html full artist discography and CDs available at HTTP://technician.jcmdi.com Note: This is copyrighted material, however, you may download this footage directly from YouTube and use it free of charge in your own non-profit/non-commercial YouTube videos.
