Alright, before we get started, I just want to say this post is way too long. If you’re not interested in the jibber-jabber, but wanna see my bitchin little time-lapse movie, just jump to the end.
$30 doesn’t buy you basically anything in photography. Maybe a lens cap. That’s the main reason I never bought a Timer Remote or Intervalometer before. The Canon branded one costs about $150. After reading up on how to make Time-Lapse movies on the awesome DIY Photography website, I did a little research and once again, it was Ebay to the rescue!
When my Taiwanese beauty arrived in the mail I was quick to bust it out. You have a few options, but basically it comes down to:
- How long should I wait to start taking pictures?
- How long should I wait between shots?
- How long should I make the shots (or let the camera take care of it)?
- How many pictures should I take?
Want to read all about it and see the final movie? Hit the jump and read on.
