    pretty amped up. You should decrease the shutter speed so you have more of a blur effect for the time lapse. Then it will look less choppy. The concept is awesome though.

    If it is too bright for long exposures, you could put one or two neutral density filters in front of the lens.

    Plenty of full-res pics taken with plungercam 1 - plungercam 2 works almost exactly in the same way, the main difference being that you can fix the focus in place.
