Oh, I see how they did it in 3 minutes - they used heavy equipment AND lots of workers! A winning combination if I ever saw one

Nice job catching it all on camera, too!

Neil, great job!

I assume that you did not ever move the camera during the entire build.

What was your interval (time between shots). What did you power the camera with? Batteries or a Power Adapter?

I agree Time lapse can be fun. I have done some using a Canon G12 camera with a battery adapter and a external timer.

The external timer is battery power only there is no power adapter available. Windows 7 64-bit 8 GB RAM,AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz,ATI Radeon HD 5770 1 GB,256GB SSD,1TB HD.

Hi Carl 


I used a Canon battery pack on my Canon 550D


The tripod was screwed to a sheet of chipboard, to minmize movement.


I used a Canon Timer set at 10 min interval which equalled about 50 photos per day or 2 seconds per day at one frame per second. 


I edited each photo for colour and exposure.


I used 500 photos per PD project and Produced at 4k, then cropped to 16:9 and Produced at 1920x1080 50P


The actual build time approx 6 months

I am surprised the battery pack held up for 6 months. Thank you for the information. Time lapse is the very reason I bought the Power Adapter for my Canon G12.

I guess 10 minutes interval is pretty good, I would have maybe used 30 minutes or one hour. Windows 7 64-bit 8 GB RAM,AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz,ATI Radeon HD 5770 1 GB,256GB SSD,1TB HD.

I went through it frame-by-frame and saw the three naked women about half-way through. Thanks!

Very nice! I also like how you had the deck chairs ready about 30 seconds in

That would keep the batteries going. I still like a power adapter better, plug it in and forget about it. Windows 7 64-bit 8 GB RAM,AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz,ATI Radeon HD 5770 1 GB,256GB SSD,1TB HD.
