"Interval Timer Shooting"


CL
          

Please, Can someone explain me how the trigger intervals, look at the manual and do not understand how to configure the options.

For example: if I want within two hours I take 2 frames every 1 second How Must I set up it?

I've put to test: 5 minutes and 3 pictures and it only takes one pix.

I would appreciate help. Thanks.

Greetings.

You didn't say which camera you have, but with a D300, you have to set the interval, number of intervals, and number of shots per interval. Your test of 5 minutes and three pictures wasn't complete. If you want pictures taken every 5 minutes for 20 minutes, you have to enter 5 minutes for the interval, 5 for the number of intervals (shots at 0, 5, 10, 15, and 20 minutes), and the number of shots per interval (3 in your test).

The exposure time can't be longer than the interval or it won't work correctly.

By the way, your first example, 2 shots every second for two hours, would result in 14,400 pictures. Is that what you're looking for?!

Excuse me, my camera is the Nikon D5100.
Then, I need to calculate. For example I Want a video of 5 minutes for a session of 2 hours, but I don't know how to make the calculation.
Thanks for your help.

There are 12 five minute segments in an hour (60 minutes/hour divided by 5 minutes/interval gives you 12 intervals/hour) , so you need 24 intervals plus one at the beginning for a 2 hour session. Set the interval to 5 minutes, the number of intervals to 25, and the shots per interval to 3, or whatever number of shots you want at each interval.
