    (84meg but well worth it!)

    The scene with the plans flying in is just amazing! :eek:

    In a nutshell:
    I love the result but Im not sure how my shutter would feel about it :wired:

    (Agg edit: I've changed the link to an OCAU mirror of the file.. the original was here.)

    For anyone wondering I believe they are 2 second exposures every 5 seconds.

    I can't download it here. What airport is it at? Damn, that was my idea. Is it from ground level?

    LAX, mostly ground level although some seems a bit higher (in the hills a bit) it is not just airport stuff, there are city scapes, and freeways, and clouds, etc.

    Anyone got any idea if there is any software available to do similar things for a Nikon? I've been wanting to do some timelapse photography for an animation for uni, but haven't had much luck finding something that will allow me to do what i want.

    Okay, cool. I'll download it at home or later tonight at work.

    I've got some way cool construction stuff and sunsets, sunrises and moonrises. Can't wait to get some more

    iirc, the picture project that came with my D70S could do it.

    I absolutely love this clip! Its so great, my favourite part is definately the planes.
    What i also really love is the soundtrack, does anyone know/have the music?
    I think i recognise it from gattaca but its been a long time since i watched it and i haven't got a copy handy to find out...

    Download the trial version of Nikon Camera Control Pro. Can't remember if it requires Capture NX to be installed too, but if it does, just download both as trials. You get 30 days of unlimitedness using them.

    Oh yeah, and don't forget to set your USB mode to PTP rather than Mass Storage, or else it don't work :). I was drunk one night and got rather shirty it wasn't working... then remembered that I needed to do this :).

    The music is from Gattaca. Michael Nyman (Gattaca composer) has a very unique musical fingerprint. Check out The Piano soundtrack, too, if you like his stuff.

    Thats amazing - I love it. The stars over the tree has to be my favourite bit.

    Redav, we should get out and do something like this sometime (given you love this stuff)

    The moon behind the clouds is my favorite bit as well. Its mesmerising and surreal. :thumbup:

    The D200\D2H\D2X all have in-built interval timers.

    Alternatively, Capture Control Pro as mentioned before.

    What about using the IR remote, and wiring it to an astable, set to a suitable time period for cameras like mine (D50). Granted this will fill the memory card, but still, a 2 gig card at normal large jpg should hold over 1100 pictures. The circuit wouldnt be too hard to build, and a resistor network hooked to rotary switches could select the delay from say 2 seconds up to 60 minutes or more. The shutter speed and all that would be set on the camera (manual mode).

    Quick and dirty in paint. Missing is the x10 switch next to the 10s of seconds and minutes switch.

    [​IMG]

    Internally a relay closes the contacts that would be the normal shutter button on the IR remote. The only problem is, the max of 15 minutes after which the camera puts the IR reciever back to sleep. This should (in my opinion) stay on until cancelled at the camera.
