A Little Time-Lapse Photography
Have you ever played around with time-lapse photography? There are some remarkable time-lapse movies out there on the Internet. The newer cameras all seem to have the ability to shoot time-lapse images even smaller sensor cameras like the Pentax Q can as well. I recently tried it out on the Nikon D4 shot off of my deck. I ran the default program in the D4, which gave me a really nice short and sweet 10-second time-lapse film. Nikon’s default program runs at 5-second intervals for 25 minutes. Obviously, all cameras allow you to set any time you want within the limitations of the memory card and camera’s programming capabilities. For those of us who want to know with what I shot this film with, it was with a Zeiss ZF.2 21mm lens at f/16. The only bonehead thing I did was not check my ISO setting, of which I realized I had it set to 3200. I should have set it to 200 and let it go. The Zeiss was set to infinity. This was a lot of fun, and I’m sure if you’re shooting travel photography something like this would really come in handy. Can’t wait to try it out again.
