When you get into truly extreme focal lengths, the visual effects you can create are both beautiful and seemingly otherworldly. This amazing short film was shot at an equivalent focal length of 2,520mm, and the scenes it captured are fascinating.
"Sun Moon London" was shot by Luke Miller around London on October 5, 2017 (Harvest moon) and January 1, 2018 (supermoon). Miller used a Canon 5D Mark III loaded with Magic Lantern, a Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, and a Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM with a 1.4x teleconverter. When he enabled the 3x crop mode in Magic Lantern and paired it with the Sigma lens and teleconverter, the result was a whopping 2,520mm equvalent focal length, providing the unique and gorgeous scenes you see in the film above. The entire thing reminds me a bit of the planes and cars scene from "Koyaanisqatsi." The result is a beautiful set of scenes in which abstract features intermingle with recognizable figures and objects, but where relative geography is almost always erased, bringing sun, moon, humanity, and architecture together almost as one. I definitely recommend taking three minutes to watch the film; it's quite an interesting look at the city.
