Timelapse video of the new Dubai Metro
Or does the HD video burn through a 16GB CompactFlash card that fast? I guess that wouldn't be surprising.
I stopped the video at each station, as the train stands at the platform for over a minute, so the film is actually comprised of 9 separate videos. On reflection, I probably shouldn't have put any transitions in...
There's actually a train swapover at the first underground station. From start to there filled up an 8GB CF card. Train pulled out, and I got the "card full" message. Got off at the next station, went back, bought another couple of cards at the mall, and then continued :)
16GB would be more than sufficient for that journey, but there is a 4GB file limit.
For anyone who catches the interview over the weekend, I'd just like to point out that in the video due to be shown on TV and the website, my identity has been stolen by someone who is clearly fatter, balder, and more boring than I ever have been.
