GoPro Photography Time Lapse Calculator

To help you with this upfront planning, CamDo has developed a time lapse calculator located here.

Planning out your time lapse shoot is very important and requires some upfront thought to make sure all your hard work does not lead to disappointment.

Factors include:

  • Desired length of time lapse movie at the end of the project
  • Speed of subject matter (eg time lapse of plants growing vs time lapse of a construction site)
  • Battery capacity (also refer to our GoPro Power Consumption page)
  • SD card capacity

We have a comprehensive time lapse guide here.

We have also posted a number of blog posts looking at various time lapse subject matter including time lapse of plants, time lapse of the northern lights and other interesting scenes. Check the list out here.
