Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the use of the built-in intervalometer, part of Performance Tuning the Canon 7D Mark II.
- A digital SLR, of course, can capture still…photographic images, and most digital cameras…today can capture video as well,…but there's an interesting sort of in-between…option available to us, and that is the ability…to create a time-lapse video, essentially a movie…that is comprised of still images captured…at a particular interval.…And so we can compress time, for example,…make a long duration of time take a short amount…of time in terms of the playback of that video.…That's a feature that used to require a cable release…that included an intervalometer feature…or an interval capture feature, but now,…with cameras such as the Canon EOS 7D Mark II,…we have the ability to set that interval right…inside of the camera.…
Obviously, you'll still need to establish…your overall exposure settings,…so here, for example, I'm set to aperture priority.…I can apply exposure compensation…as needed, set the aperture or the ISO.…The point is that I can establish my overall exposure…and then capture a series of images…in an interval time or mode.…
The Canon 7D Mark II is photographer Tim Grey's favorite camera for his own work. In this course, he demonstrates a set of customization strategies aimed at making your camera far more responsive. Learn how to adjust the size and quality of RAW and JPEG capture, add metadata such as copyright and geolocation data in-camera, set up custom exposure modes, and create time lapses by using the built-in intervalometer.
