time-lapse, part 1

after some time playing around with the new radio remote control for my sony dsc-f717 (jg-rc2), i’m ready to post some time-lapse results.

i feel like there’s a whole new dimension opening up for exploring and documenting.
it’s usually taking a lot of “don’t touch”-time to record time-lapse images, so i’m kind of limited by my own need to take other pictures. but still, i’m already thinking of other themes and subjects to do – gonna be fun!

the following files are still little projects i did for finding the correct settings.
they’re in .avi-format, you’ll need the latest xvid-codec to play them. (i recommend using ffdshow – direct link, it’s a bundle of all codecs…)
see “more” / “blah blah” for video details.

  1. Wow Markus! Was that a shooting star I saw in the moon video? And what software did you use to compile these avi’s? Fascinating!

  2. i think so.
    regarding the shutter speed and frame interval it’s the only explanation that seems reasonable to me.
    here‘s a crop (blown up to 200%) of the subject.

    the software i used is called JPGVideo – it’s freeware!
