Time Lapse - Getting Started
Here at CamDo Solutions, we make time lapse easy, reliable and affordable.
The first step before worrying about your equipment setup (we'll get to that in a moment), is to run through some calculations to check the items listed below. Don't worry, we have built an easy time lapse calculator to work it all out - but it's important to start here and understand your project constraints. Successful planning will mean a successful project.
What Information Do I Need?
The time lapse calculator will run you through the following:
- How long is the project - hours, days, months or even years?
- Length of the time lapse movie you want to create at the end?
- What is the interval between shots?
- How many frames are taken / needed to achieve this?
- How much memory do I need to store all those frames?
- How much power will I need to achieve the above?
