Let's take a quick look at the gear you need to pull this off. You could spend a little or a lot, like most things with photography. The first thing, obviously, is a camera of some sort. I've got two cameras hooked up. I've got a GoPro because it's easy, affordable, with built-in time-lapse. And most of you probably have access to a camera like this. For my more pro body, I have a mirrorless camera. I'm using an Olympus Micro Four Thirds. Any mirrorless camera would do. You could absolutely do this with a DSLR, a point and shoot, it doesn't matter. You just need the ability to control the camera remotely, either with built in software or preferably, intervalometer, which we'll explore a little bit later.
Now, these cameras are rigged up. I've got lots of extra batteries because we're going to run through them today, shooting for a long day. Just make sure you have a camera, high-speed, high-capacity memory card. Last thing you want to do is a card change in the middle of a shot. And plenty of juice to get you through the day. Alright. With that in mind, let's explore how we attach the cameras.
