That is impressive. It's nicely shot and edited, and it's a 4K video!! The ability of the K-3 to shoot 4K time-lapse video opens up a lot of possibilities.

I can see that I will soon need to get a 4K screen.

"4k" is the new "1080p", just a higher resolution for video.

Wow, nice video. How did he achieve the smooth panning during shots? I assume he was using other equipment besides just the lenses listed... The smooth exposures are also very impressive, if that is all direct from the in-camera 4K timelapse video output.

So, the panning and zooming is an in-camera setting for timelapse video too?

What's the frame dimensions for 4K in Pentax? According to this link: What is 4K Video | 4K Download

Full Aperture 4k 4096x3112 12,746,752 pixels
Academy 4k 3656x2664 9,739,584 pixels
Digital Cinema 4k 4096x1714 7,020,544 pixels
Digital Cinema Aperture 4k 3996x2160 8,631,360 pixels

4K means it has approx 4K horizontal pixels, not the number of vertical pixels like in "1080p".

Not sure about the frame size yet. It's not mentioned in the K-3 manual. It looks like 16:9 and, if it uses square pixels, it would be probably be 3840 x 2160 = 8,294,400 pixels per frame.

Since it was originally shot in Motion JPEG (for interval movie mode only), the original video should have been very HQ, but enormous.

Thanks for the clarification, my post about the 4k was just about "4k" being the new resolution buzz word like "1080p" was, .

I can see I'll have to boot up my desktop. It looks pretty shabby on my old iPad!

The mixing of the audio is superb. The percussive elements match the video elements such as the flickering lights of the ferris wheels, etc. Brilliantly done. Either the author matched already available music perfectly or he mixed it him/herself.
