There are plenty of cheap controllers on ebay for timelapse with DSLR's.
I've had a controller made by these folks for several years. I used this one:

Digisnap 2100 | Harbortronics

to make this short timelapse on Vimeo:

Twilight timelapse on Vimeo

Their other models can control all sorts of camera functions including flash.

I have posted another XDCAM EX how-to video on you tube. This one is on the Matrix.

Great tutorials clips Alister , since i see you everywhere on internet can i ask about your workflow from HD to SD.

I got a very informative discussion about it with Doug Jensen of Vortex Media here.

By the way your demo on Sony website for NAB 2009 was very great to look at.

I think doing it for HD and SD at the same time is probably like what i need the most.

If the main use of the material is SD then I shoot 720P50 edit at 720P then output as SD PAL, you would use 720P60 and NTSC. If the primary use is HD or uncertain then I shoot 1080P25 with detail level set to -10. I edit HD then downconvert using compressor.

Alister;
That's the best explanation of matrix settings I have ever seen. Thanks for that.

Howdy,

I like your calm and measured style. It is unconvoluted and to the point instead of going in 10 different directions explaining one thing.

Was it by eye only that you determined preferences of level +30 and the different matrix looks or was it in conjunction with a vectorscope.
