This was my first time lapse test. I shot it from my bedroom.

Cannon 7D, Cannon 15 MM Fisheye. 1600 shots imported into Windows Movie Maker ( yep i said it) then finished in Sony Vegas

Re: Backyard Time Lapse

Welcome to the wonderful and sometimes frustrating world of time lapse. You might want to look up some deflickering software options. There is a free plug-in for virtual dub that will help you get better results.
Make sure you lock your white balance, focus, and try shooting all-manual when you have consistent lighting conditions.

Re: Backyard Time Lapse

You might look into a strong ND filter for time lapse shooting, though that might not be practical for the fisheye. With a strong ND (at least three stops), you can increase the shutter time and that will smooth out the jitters. Also, stopping down the lens allows longer shutter times.

One tip when stopping down a Canon lens for timelapse... press and hold the DOF preview button and partially untwist the lens. This stops the camera from opening and closing the aperture for each photo. That maintains a consistent aperture size and shape, eliminating flicker.

Enjoy!
