"Time Lapse w/D7000"

This past weekend I tried my hand at time lapse photography, using the D7000. I set the camera on a tripod just after sunset and captured 124 images at 10 second intervals.

I then brought the series into Lightroom so that I could resize the JPEGs to a smaller size. I exported the images (that is how I invoke the batch re-size command) and then used PS5 to create the video file.

It worked well for my first effort. The live view screen was a big help to get my focus set. I turned LV on, zoomed into a star, and then manually focused the 50mm f/1.4 lens I was using.

I set the camera on Aperture priority at f/1.4 and iso was set to 500. This setting allowed the shutter speed to adjust as the sky darkened. A few clouds moved through as the camera was clicking away, and made for some great elements in the series.

This is the link to to video clip. It is a short clip, but a good depiction of the time lapse possibilities that can be achieved.

The bright star in the lower right is actually the planet Saturn.

This was composed by shooting 156 images at 15 second intervals.

Very cool video. I've read a few reviews, but this is the first mention I've seen of the intervalometer. I really NEED this camera.

If there's no photo, it didn't happen.
