HVX time lapse test

Did a couple of time lapse sequences as a test.

One is from Point Panic outside of Kewalo Basin, looking toward Diamond Head. The other is from Kawaikui Beach Park looking out toward Maunalua Bay.

Quicktime files, H.264 codec.

Looking good, Dean !

How were you controlling the cam - built in timer or software ?
Stormy and raining here today - that footage makes me feel like jumping on the first plane outta here !

Hi Rob...

The camera has a built-in intervalometer. Sure beats using an external controller, having to connect it to a laptop, etc. So it's very portable and easily set up. You can specify the interval from an easily accessed menu.

I'm still learning about the various settings on this thing. It certainly provides some good-looking source footage!

Thanks, Dean.
Does the camera fire a burst (like most of the sd tape cams do) or does it actually record single frames ?
I would guess it does single frames with p2, but ... ?

That's what I like about this thing: it's shooting single frames instead of bursts. So no need to go through a clip to winnow out individual frames for a time lapse sequence.

I'm thinking of setting up some sort of clock drive to allow panning while shooting a time lapse. But the clock drive has to be variable.

Higher Res?

Hey Dean...

Shots look really great. I'm trying to prove to those with the funds that they should buy me this camera. I'm building up a shots library to show how awesome the camera is. Would you mind posting a high-res version of your clip?

Thanks,
Chris Boyes

Dean,

What was the rate of single-frame capture?
