Its a remote switch with cord and self-timer, interval timer, long-exposure timer and exposure-count setting feature. Its for use with the EOS 1D, EOS 1D Mark II, EOS 1D Mark II N, EOS 1D Mark III, EOS 1D Mark IV, EOS 1Ds, EOS 1Ds Mark II, EOS 1Ds Mark III, EOS 5D, EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 7D, EOS 10D, EOS 20D, EOS 30D, EOS 40D, EOS 50D, EOS D30, EOS D60.
Hope this helps.
Please have a look at my first attempt in this TimeLapse after doing a lot of research and learning from the web...guess the milage for my shutter is going to fly from now on...
Please excuse some of the newbie mistake of some frame jitters and the compression quality. This is unedited so its a bit too long
until I have lots more scenes then I will start snipping and editing. Comments appreciated besides the length. Thanks
Planning to add on to these clips and expanding to make it a 5 min vid of Singapore timelapse scenes of day and nights and some transitions of day to night when the sky is better with pretty clouds.

yes...the compression is making it look messed up.
I shot in small jpeg 2144 x 1424 and quality is set to high
it appears good as images but I think there's a breakdown in quality when I run it
thru for a mov compilation of the shots. It's even worse after iMovie.
Any suggestions on how to preserve a good quality?
Do post in your new timelapse movies whenever you have...
it will be good to see more from the local scene.
Vimeo has a lot of Singapore scenes in TL.
Run the images thru time Lapse Assembler in MAC
selecting the following :
Codec : h.264
Framerate : 15, 24 or 30 fps
Dimensions : Custom
(i usually size down to 1280 proportionally)
All I can select is LOW, NORMAL, HIGH, MAX
I normally set HIGH
Then I do my simple editing in iMovie and output again with the following settings:
in expert settings options
Video format : H.264
Data Rate : 2000 kbits/sec
Resolution : 1280 x 720 letter box as camera shoots in 4:3 (sometimes too big so scale down to 640x480 for standard definition) or can I customise like eg 800 x 600 ????
Should I insist on 1280 to get a sharper vid?
audio : 320 kpbs / 44.100 khz
Please tell me if I am doing something wrong.

i am using qt pro as mentioned earlier. the quality is the same as the jpeg that i shot. so minimal compression there. i can't remember what setting i save under in imovie right now though.
the latest few movie was done with that. i think it is pretty decent for free software.
