    Timelapse @ Home

    Hi Folks,

    I was very busy lately, giving me no time to get out and shoot, coming home late at night and heading out early in the morning. Under these restricitions I thought to have a closer look from my home, setting up my GH1 and doing timelapse shots.

    Wow, I was surprised what could be seen early in the morning and at night just from my home in the middle of Vienna!

    Have fun watching:

    All shot with kit lens, editing in Edius Neo 2. As a member, 1080p file can be downloaded from vimeo.

      Thank you!

      I am using a JJC TM-D timer, I was using the medium resolution photo mode, smooth film mode with sharpness, contrast and NR set to -2, saturation to 0.

      During the day WB set to 5500K, at night to 3500K. For the night shots I used an exposure time of 15s, every 30s a shot, iso 200 (at higher iso's it was too noisy - thats the drawback of the slow kit lens). During the day, I was varing the shots per minute.

      In Edius Neo 2 I used a 1080p23.98 preset, and picked (in the general settings) a duration of 1 frame for the stills. Then I just had to select all photos, and with one mouseclick dragged them into the timeline. Thats a very efficient workflow in Edius.

      best regards, Gunther

        Gunther,

        Very nice work - finding the extraordinary within the ordinary.

        Do you remember how many stills were needed for the night shot?

          Thanks, Gunther...great info.

          Here's a site you might be interested in. Lots of folks doing some very high-end stuff:

          http://www.timescapes.org/phpBB3/vie...c600d64968591f

          And there's a fascinating thread about a technique called bulb-ramping. It's a bit over my head (okay, a lot) but great stuff:

              It were about 700.

                        Very pretty Gunther. I'm thinking of buying the TM-D, what do you think of it? Also does its shutter release button work even without batteries installed, for basic triggering?

                          It's a good timer, and serves every need. I am using it for more than 1 year now and I still have the first batteries installed, after more than 20.000 photos. I think it will not work without batteries (but I have not tested it).

                            That sounds great, thanks. If you do get a chance, please try it quickly without batteries. In theory it doesn't need them for the basic shutter button, but it depends how they implemented it on this remote.
