Time lapse video questions

I saw this timelapse video on Youtube and am curious as to the camera/post-production involved.


Does anyone have any thoughts or guesses? I'd love to learn more. Thanks!

My guess would be a DSLR hooked up to a battery pack and a PDA with software that tells the camera to take a picture every few minutes/seconds. I can't remember the name of the software in particular, but it's relatively inexpensive and I've seen it used on Palm Pilots and laptops. All you'd have to do is keep the battery charged and change out the memory card in the camera every so often. Once you get enough material, you can dump the cards to a hard drive and import them into After Effects as a Still Sequence. Render out an AVI to edit in your NLE of choice or just edit it all in After Effects and you have your very own wicked-cool time lapse!
