8K video (sort of) with the D800

Ran across this article on Nikon Rumors. This process wouldn't work at all for narrative work (aside from exteriors, cutaways, and such) but if you have the patience and hard drive space for it, it produces some pretty fantastic results. 

Oh for the day that we don't have to devise crazy workarounds and hacks to receive image quality of this level.

I only had a quick look, but isn't this basically just a timelapse? Any camera can do this with the right gear, so you can have >4K resolution. 8K will require a 33+ megapixel camera,

Hi Leeys,
Timelapse represents a longer lapse of time than Quicklapse: In Quicklapse the interval is much shorter in order to offer a motion perception like 24/25p video.We avoided long takes where trees, people, water and clouds use to move much faster in Timelapse.

Additionally, Quicklapse is diffetent than standard burst mode. Like we have explained in the full post, we adjust the in-camera parameters (like matching the shutter speed with the 180° shuter) with the final video sequence in mind. We also apply some interpolation and time remapping techniques in post-production.
