How to Shoot and Edit a Hyperlapse with Your DSLR

In this video from Cal Thomson, he shows you how to create a hyperlaspe using a DSLR and tripod. The hyperlapse effect was recently made popular as an application from Instagram. The mobile Hyperlapse app takes care of the image stabilization automatically.

‘Adrift’ Timelapse is Mesmerizing View of the Fog of the San Francisco Bay Area

This gorgeous timelapse film was created from footage captured over the course of 2 years around the San Francisco Bay area. Simon Christen spent many mornings on the Marin Headlands capturing scene by scene of what he calls “a love letter to the fog of the San Francisco Bay Area.”

He shot these images with the Canon 7D and Canon 4oD in raw format with exposures generally occurring every 2-10 seconds. Exposure was set in manual mode. On the last shot with the fog engulfing the camera, both the he and camera got pretty well soaked due to all of the moisture from the dense fog.

He uses a sturdy Really Right Stuff tripods for keeping the shots steady and, when necessary, uses software stabilization in After Effects to smooth out some shots.
