I was searching for a first project I wanted to shoot with my new gadget. The remote trigger for the Sony NEX 5 I presented in the previous post. I decided to shoot a timelapse video. As I did not have my time lapse trigger with me but a laptop I applied some changes to the code and the time lapse function for the Ultimate Trigger was born.
I programmed a fixed interval of 10 minutes between each shot, set the camera to aperture priority mode, set the focus to manual and started shooting for 24 hours. Every now and then I checked the progress and had some minor problems:
- After the first two hours the servo had moved and did not trigger any more.
- After the first six hours the Ultimate Trigger battery has been drained, however I noticed this after about the time, when more than four hours of shots were missing.
- After half the shooting time the Sony NEX battery was about half empty. As I did not have a spare one with me I recharged it several times for 9 minute intervals between the 10 minute shooting intervals.
Apart from these minor flaws I am satisfied with the result you can see here:
A quick and dirty cylindrical panorama made from two images shot with the panorama mode of a Sony NX5.
This panorama is the result of 26 stitched images made with the Sony NEX-5 and the 16mm pancake lens. It is a test to be compared with the experiment I described in my last two posts.
The Lensbaby Tilt Transformer makes it possible to mount Nikon lenses on the Sony NEX camera line.
