2PM to 10PM in 1 Minute

http://vimeo.com/6940080 This is a time lapse video a made on Saturday, August 22nd from 2PM to 10PM.  Photos were taken at 15 second intervals with a Canon 5D Mark II and 24-105 f/4 L lens.  The camera was set to aperature priority at F/12 to ensure a balance between focus and sufficient light for the evening portion of the capture.

The raw footage is made up of 1,730 JPEG images, each one being 21 megapixels.  In retrospect, I probably could have shot at a much lower resolution and saved some space.

The video is a little blurry because the tripod I was using wasn't securely mounted and the wind was blowing the camera around.  Initially this causes the frames to jump slightly but in the evening portion, the actually causes motion blur as the camera allows for longer exposures to compensate for the decreasing light.

To compensate for some of the jumpy footage, the motion analysis tool from iMovie '09 was used.  The final footage was rendered in to a 1080P format, compressed and uploaded to YouTube.  Enjoy
