At the moment I am considering making a step-by-step tutorial for photographers on how to get started taking timelapses with a digital still camera. The motivation for this came when preparing to give a short talk at the LBNL Photoclub on this topic. Until then, please take a look at the slides I used to support my demonstration here.
Don't know what a timelapse is? Check out the 41 second video below that is a quick compilation of a bunch of my timelapses, including day-to-night/night-to-day (holy grail) timelapses, motion-controlled timelapses, star and street scenes. Turn on HD for best viewing.
