30 seconds of timelapse.

I’ve been playing around with timelapse stuff for awhile now..Here’s a quick short I put together with some testing I did today.

Watch in HD – Looks much better!

Images combined via Quicktime Pro and vid put together in Vegas Pro.

First scene is an image every 8 seconds over 50 minutes
Second scene is every 15 seconds over an hour.
These were both done with an interval timer. Both from my balcony.

Last scene was every 20 seconds, with camera connected to a laptop running Canon’s EOS Utility over a 1hr30min period. This was done in Easter down in Rye. Unfortunately I re-sized the images prior so quality is poorer. Shame the clouds came through otherwise the stars would have come through nicely.

What up? Timelapses..

Been awhile…

Unfortunately my Canon copped the Err 99 issue has been sent off for repairs – for the past 2-3 weeks now. Tried everything to no avail – Cleaning lens contacts, (insert some other internet DIY fix here) and no luck. I had an extended warranty and they’re honoring that so it should be back in my hands soon. During that time I got to play with a Canon 5D MkII and loved it.

Also I bought a house, so have been doing a ton of work on that which has been taking away from skating time. Last thing I did with my camera before it died was some timelapse experiments. Using my 40D tethered to my laptop with a program called DSLR Pro, captured one frame every 30 seconds most of the day..put together with Quicktime Pro and then compressed with Handbrake.

The Aussie Rolling Open is on this weekend in Adelaide, Will be keen to see what comes out of that event.


Update: Congrats to Danny Jensen for taking the title!
