My Timelapse Video i made. I havent had much practice yet, but i think it turned out pretty well. Warning, you might not like the music.

Basicly i used my Nikon D90 with my 10-24mm Lens. Set it at 10mm on a Tripod in the Car. Strapped the tripod down safe and used a timelapse device.

What about battery life? How did you do that? Five hours of shooting... how many seconds were there between the pictures?

I have to say: It's quite a lot of fun watching it. Great! :) Sehr gut gemacht! :wink:

Thanks popo and jiko!
Battery Life wasnt the problem. I think i still had 50% battery left. I had more problems with my memory Card. I set for Fine jpeg medium size on my D90 and 16GB of memory was just enough. I had to buy a new memory card in Germany again. I made a picture (interval) every 2 seconds. 7000 Pictures.

Edit: i did not have a extra battery pack attatched.

ISO 800 in Aperture Mode at f/5.

I let the shutter speed do it's thing, because i constantly had diffrent lighting during the journey and didn't want under- or over exposure. Yet that still happend at some point.
But there are other ways, best is to do a test ride before the real thing.

What timelapse device did you use on the D7000, and what software did you use to assemble it?

First of all, it's a honor that the admin likes my video. Very pleased you posted it on your Google+ page.

I used my Nikon D90, not a D7000.
The first timelape i was intending to use, broke by me accidently smashing the plug off the GPS port: Satechi Timelapse

So i was about 5 days away from travelling and then i really started to panic, since timelapse devices cannot just be found everywhere here.
I managed to get one postet to me 1 day before depart: Hähnel Giga T Pro for Nikon

This Device was even wireless controlable and worked perfect! But i was careful not to smash of the plug again.

I used the boring old Windows Movie Maker on Windows 7 64-bit, since it was free. But the program struggled a lot with the 7'000 pictures and crashed alot. So if anyone knows anything better that can handle 7'000 pictures, i would appreciate it, since i might be doing more such stuff in the future.

Cheers

I loved the video and the soundtrack was very good too! Well done! :)

As for the software - you'll have trouble loading up that many images into anything unless you have tons of RAM at your disposal. With 4GB, I only managed to work with about 400 1920x1080 images at a time loaded into Adobe Premiere CS5. I have since received another 4GB, but haven't yet tried it with a time-lapse project. I am assuming it should do wonders to the crash-threshold of the software though (which, by the way, seems to be really flawed in that respect). I doubt I'd be able to load all 7k into it though! As far as I know, semi-pro and pro time-lapse photographers would use 16-32GB of DDR3 RAM on their machines - perhaps they don't run into that problem!! :)

I have a high end PC with 16 GB DDR3 RAM 1600MHz. Still crashed. I blame windows.
