Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I shot a new timelapse in Australia.. the night sky there is just breathtaking, it was so fantastic!

But just take a look by yourself:

This is really nice work and deserves more than just one posting. What were your exposure lengths for each frame? I am working on an image idea down the south coast and would like some tips.

Very nice video.

Hi,

thank you for your comments, glad that you like it :)

@Tim: At night I used a 15s exposure with ISO 3200, f/2.8 at 14mm.

Hi Passi, well now that is some brilliant bit of work you have done my friend,

I have had a play with the prog, and that is a clever bit of kit.

To put the two together like this is a smart bit of work.

Please can you tell me how you did the change from daylight to night?

Regards Ian

Hi Ian,

I am using a laptop which is connected to the camera and controls it.

I programmed an software to handle those day/night transitions automatically :)

Basically you just have to increase shuttertime and ISO (leave aperture constant) with the right speed, just try that and you will get a feeling for it.

Bye,

Pascal

Ayers Rock

Hi pascal,

Thanks for that info, yes I can see how that would work, I do not have the ability to use a laptop with the camera.

It must take a lot of power to run that sort of setup, all my kit must be portable as to some extent I live in a hole in the ground and to get good pics I need to get out and into the dark.

Thank you and good luck

Regards Ian

Hi,

Ray, I am using a software developed on my own that does this ;)

Ian, yes that requires a lot of power. I am using 260Wh for this, two batteries with a total of 2,6kg. Not that much, but if you have to carry your tent, sleeping bag, camera, tripod and so on you are at 15kg ore more..
