Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing the right interval for shooting, part of Shooting a Hyperlapse Time-Lapse Video.
…Like all time lapse shooting, you need to determine an interval.…And this is really the frequency in which the shot is exposed.…Now, with a hyperlapse, a moving camera, things get a little bit trickier.…First off, we're recording for an extended period of time.…So I need to take into consideration that the card doesn't fill up too…quickly, and that I have time for the shot to be written to the card.…Fortunately, I have high speed cards here.…so I don't seem to have much of a lag issue.…You'll note here that if I take a shot,…take another shot, it's getting pretty quick to the card.…
So, I'm not that worried about that.…That seems to be working well.…Let's talk about the GoPro for a moment,…or a camera that doesn't have an advanced intervalometer.…I set this GoPro to five seconds.…Generally speaking, my rule of thumb is somewhere around…the number of seconds for every ten miles an hour.…Now, I will go somewhere between five and six seconds…here, depending upon what's going to work well for this situation.…
