Thread: Timescape/Interval timer

  1. #1

    Default Timescape/Interval timer

    Hi all,
    I came across this video on vimeo,


    Apparently, it is taken with still shots from a DSLR, and put together into a video.
    Anyone know how this can be done using a DSLR. I'm using a Nikon D80, and i believe newer cameras has a interval timer, of which you can continuous shooting for a certain amount of time.

    Anyone tried this?

    it is call time-lapse photographer. most DLSR has built in function, check your user manual to see how you can utilize it.

    or you can get a Intervalometer to use it on your camera.

    there are a few members done time lapse photography.

    To do time lapse, you need 2 components.

    A software to compile the time lapse pictures into a movie, and a mechanism to get the shutter to go off every x seconds/minutes.

    The software is available in both public domain (freeware) as well as commercial versions. Of course, freeware ones have limited functions, but its cost is $0. Unless you are using it for commercial work, I think the freeware version should suffice.

    The other part, the mechanism, I use a Phottix Nikos Remote Timer from Red Dot Photo. The remote timer will remain even if you change camera, as all you need is to change the cable with the appropriate pin adapter for the specific camera you are using.

    HTH.
