    Default Mt Ruapehu timelapse.

    I spotted this rather impressive timelapse on facebook and thought i should share it.

    Very nice.

    Speaking in general terms though about timelaspe movies such as this one, I feel that for the amount of effort it must involve I kinda wonder if the 'timelaspe' technique could be better intergrated with both real time movie and still images.

    I'd certainly like to see the rigs they use to get the camera motion during the timelaspe.

    Yeah after trying out timelapse i did get a bit bored sitting around with not alot to do for a few hours and burning through 10000 shutters the novelty wore off

    Yes it's that camera motion that intrigues me, I imagine a rail of some sort to allow incremental shifts between shots. It would all have to be computer driven or it would drive you insane after the first 100 shots...

    Yep camera is on a rail system, seen some footage of that. And driven by laptop.

    Superb results though, I love these. Could I do one myself? I dont think I would have the patience.

    Yeah it'd have to be a computer driven step motor setup - otherwise some serious insanity would be in order, especially if you bumped the thing along whilst doing your incremental shifts!
