Time-lapse/interval recording

Is it possible to create time-lapse clips with the EA50 using interval record? My Panasonics allow the shooting of one frame per second, or ten seconds up to several minutes.

Nothing in the manual or on here to suggest it's possible.

I'm documenting a construction project and wanted to give it a try.

Re: Time-lapse/interval recording

Here are some links to companies that provide a solution that in essence creates time lapse thru the cameras IR(infrared)remote control.

redNEX - Video & Photo Remote Control for your NEX camera

Gentles Limited: Wizard Camcorder Timelapse

Here's an example on vimeo of setting the camera to record 3fps in photo mode to do a timelapse of toronto at night:


Looking forward to seeing some examples of timelapse in response to this post, I know I will be posting some videos when time permits.

Cheers!!

Thought I might bump this up and see if anyone has used one of these IR remotes?

I'd love to be able to use my EA50 for time-lapses. Has anyone found any other methods to make it possible?

Hi Jody

Since posting I have seen dozens of apps for Android devices claiming to offer time lapse functions for Sony NEX cameras.

I had some success last year with Nikon apps, so will give the Sony compatible versions a try soon:

Thanks very much for the info. My smartphone has an IR sender so I'm going to try a few of those apps right now. Will report back with my findings.

edit: I tried a few different apps and none seem to work. Cool concept though..
