Time-Lapse Photography

These are various time-lapse videos that I have made using various cameras and a home-made intervalometer. The last few have been produced with a Nikon D90. The high-tech equipment I've been using to mount my camera into my car consists of a basic tripod duct-taped to the front edge of the passenger seat.

I recorded my trip from Utah to California taking one picture every 10-11 seconds, minus about an hour of travel before Winnamucca when I could change the battery. There are about 2970 pictures in all, played at 24 frames-per-second.

I've reconsidered the current need for large file uploads. I'll figure that out after the rest of the site is working off the new website system I'm programming. For now I'll just be using a workaround for uploading the occasional file larger than 8 megabytes.

This is a time-lapse video of part of my trip from California to Utah, compiled from 2036 pictures from a digital camera mounted on the passenger-side sun visor of my car. It isn't the entire trip, since my camera's batteries kept dieing and the camera's power jack input doesn't seem to work at all. Batteries are a pain to change when the battery compartment is covered by one of the zip ties holding the camera in place.

The next time I try this I will be mounting my tripod to a part of the car and sticking the camera on that. I don't know why I didn't think of it the first time through. Also, I'll need more batteries.
