"Time lapse photography"

So with the D3200 and its limited functionality is there a way to do time lapse photography?

Certainly. Just use some external functionality. I'm pretty sure that ControlMyNikon can do this in tethered mode, for example.

Been googling and either my D3200 isn't listed as supported or it works windows only. I have checked control my Nikon and nikons own program. I now have another reason to upgrade in the future.

Hi John.

Yes, time-lapse photography is very interesting with good results.
Start with your tripod - you will need that.
And I suggest your 18-55 lens.
Be sure to check out the time-lapse forum here at Nikonians.

Good luck; looking forward to some of your images.

Terry.

I just had a look at their web site, and the wording on the D3200 is pretty ambiguous. They say that "pretty much all new cameras are supported other than P&S." So I'd ask them directly about the D3200.

As far as Windows only goes- I use it on MacOS via a Windows virtual machine. Most folks on here would probably prefer Parallels, which is a way of running Windows (or any other operating system) in... well, a window on the Mac. I personally use VirtualBox for this - it is free for non-commercial use. I happen to know the developers, which of course is a major advantage, but it does work well and I have not actually had to call on them. CMN works quite well in this arrangement. I mostly use it for DOF stacking, but on a D3.

I'm on a fully loaded mac book pro going on 6 years old. No more room for any of that. i do have vmware fusion but I just dont have the resources to get it on here. I have been going round and round on wether to upgrade this machine or replace it or chase a more advanced camera. I certainly do use the mac more but hate the idea of getting rid of it. I dont like the black keypad on the new ones.

Well, mine's 5 years old next month, so I'm not in much better shape than you are. VMware will do the trick too.

I assume you're asking about ways of firing the shutter automatically at timed intervals rather than about processing in software. You can find several cheap (around $30) remotes that have a built-in intervalometer/timer on eBay that are compatible with the D3200. Just search for "D3200 remote timer" or similar. Most come from China and they probably aren't the best build quality in the world but they should work and are cheap enough to experiment with. I have used a cheap Chinese remote without the timer (my D300s has a built-in intervalometer) for about 2 years and am very happy with it.

Hi,

The basics you will need:

- DSLR
- Tripod
- Intervalometer (Intervals between frames, length of exposure)
These can be purchased at B&H, Adorama, Amazon. The third party are
fairly inexpensive ($30 - $150). Here is a link
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Delectronics&field-keywords=intervalometer+D3200&rh=n%3A172282%2Ck%3Aintervalometer+D3200&ajr=0

I am pretty sure the D3200 has and MC-DC2 accessory connection so the devices in the link should work for you.

There are a lot of good resources on the web...Google - Time Lapse Photography

Hope this helps.

Thanks, this and a lightning strike detector are on my wants list. I made them contingent on making a few learning goals with the camera first. When I can consistently get a good manual exposure then I will have them. By consistent I mean 90 % of the time day or night flash or not. I'm at about 70% now and if I adept some adjustments in aperture. I am only at about 35% if I want perfect out of the camera. Manually I am always off slightly from what I want. Don't know if that is normal but I constantly wonder how some of my old film pictures were acceptable to me and now they look like candidates for a scan and rework post processing. Lol I digress thanks for the link I will check it out now! Later Bertotti

Did you shoot slide film or negative film in the past? The printing process with negative film took care of minor exposure flaws, and often over exposure was helpful with color negative film. Exposure bracketing was often employed when using slide film as it was less forgiving of exposure errors.

I always shot film. I have a box full of negatives somewhere. I knew little of photography then, some where good shots and often many just didn't get printed because my exposures were messed up. I didn't have a clue. But every picture that got printed was a success for me then. Funny how our perceptions change over time. I was only a kid and my 35 mm kid camera had little adjustment but when I used my moms k1000 and Lateran my Richo I realized how little I new but was usually to broke to do much photography. I my sure a lot of people has similar experiences, ignorance is bliss eh! Lol

With all the help I have gotten here and the understanding exposure book things are really looking up! Thanks Bertotti

I do have several a lot of slides in storage also that my mom took. I will get them scanned at some point in time as week.
