Digislider Motion Control Time Lapse Motorized Slider Kit Demo

The DigiSlider motorized slider Time Lapse Kit is incredibly easy to setup and operate adding an entirely new dimension to what would normally just be a static sequence of images. With a fast shutter speed you can certainly create moving time lapse from just about any motorized slider, but unlike sliders that have a continuous slow crawl, the DigiSlider Time Lapse Kit can be setup for Shoot-Move-Shoot. Here's a quick demo on how that works.

Timelapse is certainly an art form which requires both patience and capturing something interesting. I know my examples were poor, but you can see excellent examples of what the DigiSlider has done over at the DigiSlider Vimeo Page (Click Here).

Night Time Shoot Move Shoot

The DigiSlider Time Lapse Slider Kit is pretty straight forward. There is no software to program or long menus to sift through. Two basic analog dials and a rocker switch control everything from distance of slider travel to intervals between shutter actuations. The parts are minimal and can be either setup or broken down in about a minute.

HDR Time Lapse

The Time Lapse Kit uses a controller for shoot-move-shoot intervals and a slow speed motor. This kit alone does not offer continuous movement for live video capture. If you want to use the slider for continuous movement, they offer a separate controller and a different speed motor. Or check out one of their kits that comes with both functionality.

Macro Time Lapse

Vertical TimeLapse

Of course these kits are only the basic foundation to get you started in motion Time Lapse and you can always upgrade to a more advanced controller and motorized Pan/Tilt head for a full 3 Axis solution.

    @Dan Eckert - There is a few ways to do it in camera. You can choose to shoot up to three exposures, save all the files, and edit in post later.

    I took the easy way and did 3 exposures in small JPEG and auto created a single file. I didn't save the originals. The short clip is what came out of the camera.

    Hard to tell from the photos but the Reno sign was very shaded and the sky would have been blown out if it weren't for the HDR. I should have used an ND to blur the people moving, but didn't have all the gear with me.
