Timelapse video

Hi,
I recently saw several timelapse videos shot with the 5D MarkII. Are these video clips simply done by speeding up the video with a software or is there an interval recording (video) mode like on the EX-1 where you can shoot at lets say 1 frame per 3 seconds?

I have not seen the footage that you are refering to, but yes you can do both with
this camera....

you can shoot standard 30P footage and slow it down in post and you can also set the
camera up to shoot incremental shoots at a slower duration...

To do the later you need to have the RS-80N3 remote to program the sequence

I think using still images works best.
Especially for getting streaks of light with slow shutter.
Here is some timelapse footage I did with my Canon 30D.

I can't wait to do some with my 5D MKII.

I do it all in Final Cut Pro.
Import the folder of images, Drag folder to timeline...and render............
I set the timeline settings to the same res as the photos, this gives you flexibility in framing.

Then export to format of choice.

I've heard it's possible to do in Motion as well, but I never figured out how.

I've been curious about Timelapse too and found the following good info:
Timescapes
and
Time Lapse in HD on Vimeo

They are helping me - maybe you too?

I have been using this

Canon TC-80N3 Timer Remote Control for EOS 5D, D30, D60, D10, 1D, 1V & 20D SLR Cameras | BuyDig.com, The Internet's Digital Superstore (cheap on ebay)

I just test a few images (shutter, f-stop etc) untill I get the right look, then use the remote to fire off as many shots as I need. I have been doing alot of night shots around NY last week and they came out great.... having 21mpx to play with is amazing for cropping, panning, zooming etc

The cheap ones on e-bay are not official Canon products. Has anybody tried any of these knock-offs and had good results they can share? I realize the device is rather simple, so as far as I'm concerned building a functional clone for well under than $50 should be no problem at all, but reassurances are always good.
