I have since gotten a Canon D-SLR and it is 1000 times better. I hook it to my laptop and I can take a frame per second for crystal smoother beyond HD rez time lapse. Lots of fun! You can mess with the shutter and get those great streaking headlights/etc. Easy to compose as well...

Ash,

Did you do the whole sports show opening or just part of it? Also, was it all done with XL2s? I was very impressed with it.

Here is a time lapse I shot last night of some candles with my XL2

settings were .5 sec/5min

I think it looks a little jerky probably would have been better with a shorter interval

I did all of it... that open is mostly XL1s actually... My XL2 was being used too much to tie up in time lapse. I use the HVX or my 20D for all timelapse now...

Awesome job...

I am shooting a series of timelapses with the XL2, shooting continuously with tape (and speeding up in post) and at the same time running DV out to a Macbook which has DVTimelapse software. Using this software I am capturing at 1 frame per second.

My problem is what is the best method to set the exposure ? Do I just put the ND in and set to Automatic or what. Any help appreciated

I want to shoot from darkness to sun up

Bob

You have to use auto but shift it to UNDER expose a little...

Thanks, we are actually even upgrading that open to include some NASCAR stuff and flashier graphics. The show will air next year nation wide thru syndication and several networks.
