YouTube user ZipCam has posted some fascinating video of ship traffic in the Panama Canal shot over a two-day period in April 2012 at the Miraflores locks portion of the canal, where water is drained and filled before allowing ships through. When they were begun in 1914, the locks were considered one of the world’s greatest engineering projects. New Zealand filmmaker Richard Sidey also has some first-person video of the journey.
