Metal Band Rammstein Releases Impressive Stage Construction Time Lapse Video

by Sarah Wallace March 09, 2020

One strength of time lapse photography is its ability to show large, complicated processes in a way our brains can comprehend. It allows us to understand scale. As a music lover, I’ve always found stage construction time lapses interesting. I’ve found myself sitting at shows in large stadiums looking at enormous, intricate stages and productions wondering just what goes into bringing this to life. The German industrial metal band, Rammstein, gives us a peek behind the curtain with a time lapse video highlighting the entire process.

How To Determine Your Time Lapse Interval

by Sarah Wallace January 29, 2020

Simply put, a time lapse interval should be set in relation to the speed of the action of what you’re capturing. It determines the length of the final video and to a certain extent, the speed of your final video.

Time Lapse Videos Show Wildfire Progress of Decker and Saddleridge Fires

Time lapse is an incredible way to visually display progress. I think we can all agree on that. And progress is good, right? Not always. In the midst of another very active fire season, fires have been progressing rapidly due to high winds, an abundance of fuel (dead branches and leaves), and non-existent precipitation. And time lapse videos of some of the fires are popping up all over the web showing this progress.

How to Capture a Beautiful Time Lapse of the Northern Lights with UpBlink

How to Capture a Beautiful Time Lapse of the Northern Lights with UpBlink

by Dean E August 28, 2019

I had the pleasure of traveling to the Yukon in search of Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) awhile ago. Photos of this phenomenon are always pretty spectacular and I wondered if I could capture something similar but in time lapse format using my GoPro. As a backup I also packed my trusty Panasonic Lumix, a nice compact camera with all the requisite manual controls.

I had been wanting to put the latest CamDo UpBlink Time Lapse Controller (which was released earlier this year) through its paces in a more challenging environment and this was the perfect opportunity. We had recently iterated our successful outdoor solar enclosures so I also took one of these along to see what interesting time lapses we might be able to capture.
