Raydio Master iOS Professional Bluetooth Wireless Trigger
March 31, 2013


Tweet
There’s a number of iPhone shutter remotes that can add features your camera may lack such as a basic intervalometer (time-lapse) or HDR bracketing. Some systems offer an additional hardware receiver to sync up via Bluetooth and operate wirelessly. One major problem is that you may not want to tie your iPhone down just to [...]

DIY camSlider Project Part I & II
April 20, 2011


Tweet
Looks like a fun little DIY Arduino based motion controlled slider project is unfolding. Starting the platform out with IGUS Drylin W rails and carrier (wider version), and adding in a custom fitted pulley system. My guess is that the programmable controller will eventually be used for Timelapse movements and intervalometer trigger. Part 1 & [...]

Canon 60D Travels to Las Vegas
January 11, 2011


Tweet

Testing out the Canon 60D w/ Tokina 11-16mm with cheap Timelapse Timer Remote. I’m still very happy with this cheap Timer Remote. I thought that it would have battery problems since there’s no On/Off switch. You have to flip the watch type button battery around when it’s not in use. There’s been several days I [...]

January 1, 2011


Tweet

Egg timer, Rotisserie, and a GoPro HD Camera. It’s not a riddle, but that’s what Vimeo member Tony Rodriguez used as the recipe for making this DIY Motion Controlled Panning Timelapse rig. Not the first time i’ve seen a GoPro on a simple Egg Timer, but this I believe is the first time i’ve seen [...]

Sorry guys, another Canon G12 post, but I can’t help it. The Canon Powershot G12 camera is not only fun, it’s very functional. I decided to take a trip down to the local bart station to get some movement for an HDR Timelapse test. What’s special about this video you see before you? There is [...]

Canon G12 vs Nikon P7000 Real Time HDR Timelapse?
November 4, 2010


Tweet

Someone responded to my earlier video about the Nikon P7000 and Canon G12 review. I mentioned that the Canon G12 can accept a remote for Timelapse Photography and the Nikon doesn’t accept the remote. Turns out Nikon has an Intervalometer feature built in and you don’t need to carry an extra gadget. Touche’ I say, [...]

Attica – Canon 7D & 50mm Timelapse
May 31, 2010


Tweet

I really enjoy Timelapse videos. I think mainly because you have to be both Photographer & Videographer to pull off something awesome. You have to prepare yourself to be in a mindset to not only take good looking pictures, but get the settings right for when you convert those images into a video. One of [...]
