Considering that the final result of time lapse photography is a video file, you …might wonder why you would capture individual frames as photographs rather …than just capturing video in the first place. …It's a good question but there actually some very good reasons that you'll want to …capture individual frames rather then video. …Today's digital SLR cameras, of course, do enable you to capture video, and it is …possible in post processing to drop frames. …So, for example, we would usually record video at 30 frames per second, but if you …were using a one-second interval we could certainly adjust the video after the fact …so that we only have a video with one frame per second.…
And that would give you the same effect as a Time-Lapse. …However, with a digital SLR, you're usually limited in terms of how long a …video you can record. In my case, for example, my limitation is …a ten-minute video clip, which might work for some time lapses, but not for most. …I also don't want to deal with those very large file sizes. …
