Video: 'M25 Timelapse Test'

Click on this image to view the QuickTime (0.6MB)
I'm keen to use my DSLR camera for the purpose of making some hi-res timelapse films. Here's an early test showing classic 'traffic trails'. I set the shutter to about 2 seconds, then fired off the shots using the continuous shooting mode, i.e. by holding the shutter release button down.

It's early days, and some kind of cable or timer release device for the camera would be preferable. There is a timer remote from Canon available (Canon TC-80N3) though I understand this would need to be modified to fit my Canon 350d camera. I'm exploring options available at the moment but would welcome any comment or advice from readers with experience in this area...

New Vids on the Blog

Well here goes. I've finally figured out how to add movie files to this blog. The above image is clickable and should trigger a short QuickTime movie. I've implemented this after finding some fantastic advice about adding video clips into the Blogger template.
Big thanks to Svein Høier and Jon Hoem (Arts and Media Dept., Norwegian University of Science and Technology)for putting their tutorial online.
