this is my second attempt at doing timelapse on 28 jan 2011 from 6-7.40pm.
set up my equipment (d90 + laptop) on a desk and used a paper calendar + box as a tripod for the camera.
6 seconds interval with Aperture priority mode on the camera.
the outcome was acceptable, however some improvements to be done are;
– use a tripod (shutter open-close caused the camera to shake up and down.. noticeable !! arghh!! )
– avoid using Aperture Priority and stick to manual, to increase the light to dusk effect (shutter transitioned from 1/2000th of a second to 13 seconds in the last frame, causing the picture to be much brighter compared to actual)
– take note of potential reflection from office windows (best to make the timelapse without any barrier between the subject and camera)
anyhow, the 2nd trial worked well but after googling i realized that if someone is serious about doing timelapse; investing in a trigger timer (phottix has one) is the best option and it really isnt that expensive either (rm200 + or less than $100 dollars).
lastly, hope you’ve enjoyed the video..
