The drone-lapse is an impressive technique. It stems from the word hyper-lapse, which in turn stems from time-lapse. The time-lapse is a technique that involved taking multiple photos in a timed-out sequence to get the illusion of movement. Doing it with a moving video camera is called a hyper-lapse. Doing that with an aerial camera is a drone-lapse. Check out this aerial hyper-lapse of the area around Kuala Lumpur by pilot fasteddie75.
