Timelapse experiments

Had a first stab at some time-lapse today – I think it may have been prompted by an anxiety about the changing seasons. Not sure.

I hooked up my Canon 550D (or Rebel t2i) to my laptop and used the EOS Utility driver as a remote control taking pictures at 5 second intervals. The camera was set to manual – afraid I can’t remember what the settings were.

I then stuggled a bit with the editing before discovering that you could make the video in QuickTime Pro7 by opening the photos as an image sequence.

You can also do a crude bit of colour correction with the filters when you export.


This is the first stab – monsterous buddliea outside my window


Couldn’t resist the classic cloud timelapse
