Two people have made a 4 minute "travelogue" of their 7,500 mile train trip from Beijing to Moscow using the video capability of one of the DSLRs. A large part of this journey is on the Trans Siberian Railroad of course.
For those who are considering a trip on the Trans Siberian Railroad, here is a humorous link in something called "Wikitravel":
A friend of mine who has been on this train says that by the end of trip you realize that train travel is not all that romantic if they do not clean out the latrine cars often enough.
Its 4 minutes long, its very interesting, and the music is great.
But what I find very interesting is that I keep seeing the so-called diorama illusion when I watch it. The diorama illusion is the illusion that something that is life size when photographed a certain way looks as though it is a model. The classic examples of these were Viewmaster photographs of something small. It has to do with a shallow depth of field.
Here is a Wikipedia page on the topic:
In general the digital cameras have a more shallow depth of field because they are using lenses that have smaller focal lengths. Why it is we associate the shallow depth of field with the illusion of a model I do not know.
