Time-lapse - Castle Coch Clouds

Newer Older

I've always wanted to do time-lapse photography but never thought I'd be able to afford to get a camera to do so - well I found this great little Samsung C20 ultra compact memorycam. It uses SD memory cards like my camera, it fits in my hand and best of all does time-lapse photography - the actual videoing is not fantastic but good enough for family outings etc.....it has a built in camera, that too isn't up to much.........but I just love the time-lapse it can do. ....and it was fairly cheap, a bargain in fact.....this is probably the cheats way of doing these and the quality is no where as good as some of the ones here on flickr.

I know flickr wasn't made for videos, I'm not sure where this falls in, photos made into a video maybe??...........and I'm afraid I shall probably be posting a few of these. I must see if there is a way of adding music.

Vale Boy, brackenb, and H*B added this video to their favorites.

    Thanks Clive, Lesley and Eiona - this was about the third one I'd done, I was quite pleased with the results, love seeing the clouds like this......glad you liked it too.
    *cough cough*....those are dust spots on my window, least thats what I like to call them, the sunshine just highlighted them a touch.......lol
    Note to self :
    I must remember to clean my windows before doing this again ;-)

    LOL don't worry about it, I am just pleased I didn't clean them in half term - after all this rain we've had I'd be cursing by now........I blame the dirty rain, if it were clean rain it wouldn't be a problem ;-)))
    love your photo btw.

    This is awesome Gale, I added music to my video just using Windows movie maker. It was super easy.

    I add music with Microsoft Movie Maker which came pre-packaged with my pc.
    Maybe your camera has a way to do it.
    I should consider that camera, this is really amazing!

    You've convinced me, Gale, have to visit Castle Koch soon...

    this is brilliant Gale! I'd be interested to know over what duration this was shot, and how frequently it's taking an image. It's so effective.

    Thanks for your comments, I have another to post soon.....lol

    I'm not sure of the specifics, but I set it to 5secs per capture and you then set the time, but I just let it run for about half an hour, I should have timed it really but forgot....so going on that, and using my calculator - there are about 360 photos, (if I've worked it out correctly) but that sounds a bit much - so what I'm saying is, I don't have a clue.......lol
